Love about relationships -- with things, with people

The essence of forgiveness

In Victor Hugo's “Les Miserables,” Jean Valjean spends 19 years of his early life in prison.  After his release from prison, he is befriended by a bishop, who invites him into his home.  During the night, Jean Valjean wakes up, steals silver plates from the bishop, and flees.  He is caught.  The police bring him back to the bishop.
