A mini-thought on love

I want to quote from Pope Benedict's book, Feast of Faith, on love, which is a quotation that would have fit into my long series on love.

" does not consume: it gives and, in giving, receives."


"Yes, there is such a thing as love, therefore there is hope."

Sacrificial love is the goal of all of our hearts, whether we realize this truth or not. To me, the  episode of Moses meeting God in the Burning Bush is a sign of that sacrificial love. God is All-Loving. He burns with this Love which is communicated in the Eucharist. Sacred ground is the Mass.
