In the evolution of human beings, and especially since the time of Christ, we have been equipped to move beyond the limitations of the reptilian brain.

But, alas, we are not Jesus, even though we'd like to be. Even the saints struggled with seeing innocence in others instead of guilt. Therese of Lisieux, who writes, It was so obvious that I didn't love my sisters as God loves them.

I realize now, that perfect love means putting up with other people's shortcomings, feeling no surprise at their weaknesses, finding encouragement even in the slightest evidence of good qualities in them.

But it is no help if it keeps us from being in relationship with others.

We are trapped in our reptilian brain when we react impulsively to someone by seeing guilt instead of innocence.

[Top] “To create in parishes small faith communities of men and of women committed to supporting each other in living a Christian life characterized by acts of love, kindness, appreciation, and forgiveness.” My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, Almost three years ago, God called me to serve as Executive Director for Sacra Mentors.

I must admit that when God first called me, I came up with a host of excuses why I shouldn't and couldn't serve as Executive Director.We fear what is not like us in others, and from fear we move to judgment. Seeing guilt in someone is really a way to protect ourselves, to patrol our personal borders.As long as a person is guilty until proven innocent, we have a mental and emotional cyclone fence in place and the gate is locked. He always looks to see the innocence in us and not our guilt, even when we cross the boundaries of virtue to sin.To love others as God loves them is to accept that we are all wounded, unhealed and broken in some way.Yet, by accepting the wounded parts of others, we actually help to restore them to emotional health.By loving the unhealed parts of others, we help them to heal.
