By his sensitivity to the occurrences of hate and by his courage to say it in a plausible and non-offending way, Željko Mardešić is more an exception than a rule in the spiritual milieu of Croatian culture and religiosity. This paper focuses on a short writing in which Mardešić confesses to his silence about hate. It analyses the meaning and nature of hate in an attempt to show what lies in the unsaid background of Mardešić’s confession. Leaning on Heidegger and his understanding of emotion as opening the world, the author examines, through Mardešić’s metaphors for hate – framework and air, the characteristics, scope and time of appearance of major waves of hate in society. Comparing hate with contempt and anger the author also shows the basic intention of Mardešić’s writings on hate: exiting the framework for hate and creating a framework for forgiveness. This clearly shows Mardešić’s position in society as well.
