Knowing How To Lose
Is it possible for one person truly to love another? Am I able to love you for you and not for me? And when it comes to God, do I not use him as a prop for my own lack of maturity?
This collection of short reflections will help us to see that true love between persons is possible and that our love of God is the fulfillment of our personal freedom. Again and again the meditations return to the first Christian, Mary, who emerges as the freest human being there has ever been.
