The luxury of being able to despise

The other day during mass I remembered a thought from Brennan Manning. A young man said to a Franciscan: I would have become a Franciscan, if only I had then the luxury of being able to despise some people.

The luxury of being able to despise some people! That luxury, in the eyes of that young man, was not permitted to a Franciscan. It is not permitted to any religous, not even to Salesians. It is not permitted to any disciple of the Lord.
