Obviously the degree to which we are both
drastically varies in each soul
and varies over time
I have never met a perpetrator who became such a lone.
I have never met a victim who became such a lone
I have never met a victim who was not also a perpetrator,
even if only to oneself.
I have never met a perpetrator who was not also a victim
We, I, cannot recover alone-this is the hope Christ offers,
this i believe is one of the purposes of the cross-
“solidarity for the victim AND atonement for the perpetrator
and the hope of embrace”*
