It follows that if I sincerely desire reconciliation and therefore ask your forgiveness, this entails penitence and a change of heart on my 3 John Burnaby, Christian Words and Christian Meanings (London, 1955), 90.

We fail to identify with God in love by making his will our own. The result is that the will of God remains for us no more than an external duty that we fulfil because we must and not because we want to. We are therefore unable to choose authentically to do the will of God. Like the prodigal son we leave the Father’s house and go to a distant country where we try to ‘do our own thing’. Like him we seek our ‘riches’ by striving after finite goods and in doing so we rely on our finite knowledge, our finite means, our finite capacities and our finite opportunities.

In short, each one of us seeks to achieve that individual ideal of a good life, which constitutes his or her chosen self-image, and in achieving which he or she hopes to realize his or her individual identity as a person. In this connection Plato distinguishes the imperfect way each individual actualizes the Good or the Beautiful from the perfect potentiality which each individual has for realizing the Good or the Beautiful in his or her own person.
