Abstract

The desire of the encounter with the other in their miseries is streamed by the encounter with the Christ who communicates the Divine Mercy and the vital force of love to our miseries, having as the direct effect the desire to love, and here the agape’s subjectivation begins to operate the resignificance of narcissistic subjectivation. In the initiative of God Loving affective and effectively human alterity roots the Christian sensibility of alterity and responsibility with creation. However, such “imperative to hear the cries of the poor” (eg 179-180) has “beginning in the innermost of ourselves” (EG 193), or otherwise said, is grace to be desired as a response to agape’s subjectivation that the Holy Spirit streamlines.
