Female SS torturers are supervised by British infanty burying the dead in a mass grave – Bergen Belsen Concentration Camp: 23rd April 1945
What do you feel about these women who have tortured and killed their brothers and sisters? Hate? Loathing? Disgust?
Herein lies the truth: we are also these women. Inside of each of us is the torturer. Inside of each of us is the murderer. Inside of each of us is the most horrible aspects of humanity. Once we can come to understand that we embody the very things we have hated in others, then we have come to know ourselves. Then we are ready to love.
It is at this point we can begin to appreciate the Love that God has for us. For me.
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, The Sinner.
