“I don’t get you. I don’t understand you.
I don’t even like you sometimes.
But I accept you. I accept you.”
I’m not sure where I found this quote, but sometimes I say it to myself while caring for Mom, adding, “But I love you. I love you.”
That sounds pretty sick, doesn’t it, especially from a Catholic sister about her mom, let alone an Adorer of the Blood of Christ who is called to see everyone as the “dear neighbor” and welcome them as she would Christ.
