We were once foolish, disobedient and misled.
We then lived in malice and envy.
Hateful ourselves, we hated one another.

--from the Liturgy of the Hours (Titus 3.3)

It's a simple text, but I love the image of seeing salvation as being emancipated from the cycles and dynamics of hatred.

Being lost is being in that place where we all hate each other, even ourselves.
