QuotationVon Balthasar's Word and Revelation excellent. One fine passage where he says substantially what Juliana of Norwich says about "all manner of things shall be well." Namely that Christ judges and separates good from evil in order to reveal the truth about man in this separation, but the "rejected" will turn out to have been those "chosen" with a greater and more mysterious mercy. Can there be a limit to the mercy of Christ, who has fully satisfied forever all God's justice, and now has the world in His hand to do with it according to His merciful Love?
