Divine Love in Paradise

As the Amish bury their children, they teach all of us about divine love and forgiveness. As the Swedish theologian, Gustaf Aulen wrote in 1969:

“Forgiveness breaks the chain of causality because he who ‘forgives’ you –out of love- takes upon himself the responsibility for the consequences of what you have done. Forgiveness therefore, always entails a sacrifice.”

For me, the ideal retirement community would in Paradise near the Amish so that we may live in proximity to the real saints of this world.
