[Eros] is the love of healing, the love that reconciles the alienated and separated. It is the love of forgiveness that reaches to the depths of the finite experience of fragility, worthlessness, willful rebellion, or oppressed, silent passivity. God as lover has a particular desire for union with these creatures who uniquely have the gifts of reflective consciousness and finite freedom and the capacity to respond with love in personal ways.
