Victory Through Defeat

"No fighter is more divine than the one who can achieve victory through defeat. In the instant when he receives the deadly wound, his opponent falls to the ground, himself struck with a final blow. For he strikes Love and is thus himself struck by love. And by letting itself be struck, love proves what had to be proven: that it is love indeed."
Fr. Hans Urs Von Balthasar
