James Alison on Forgiveness

Quotation of the day on forgiveness by one of my favourite Girardian theologians:
..this is what acting out forgiveness in the world looks like: it looks like knowing that you are dealing with dangerous people, who are more than likely to be deeply destabilized by your innocence and because of that to seek to lynch you.
I also recommend the Girardian Reflections on the Lectionary website from which this quotation is taken.
