James K Baxter
'When people love one another, and speak the truth, and share their goods - Christ comes to live in their hearts, whether they believe in Him or not - because Christ is the Love of the Many incarnate among men.
These things are possible to sinners. The bread of friendship can be eaten even if it is spotted with fly dirt. And the fact that these things are possible gives the man who is speaking to you a real hope and a real sense of meaning in life.
To love means in the long run to die for one's friends. There are no exceptions to that rule. The seed has to die in order that the plant may grow.'
(James K Baxter)
