Love is the essence of God’s presence in our lives. Sourcing examples from the Old and New Testaments as well as from his personal experience of love for God and others, Pope Francis teaches us that God exists in our lives as steadfast, endless love. When love is cultivated in our own hearts, it will bear the fruit of all other virtues.
On Love connects us to Pope Francis’s abiding belief that we were created to be God’s instruments of love in the world.
“It is precisely God’s love that gives meaning to our small daily tasks and helps us face great trials. This is the true treasure of humankind: going forward in life with love, a love that the Lord has sown in our hearts. The Lord’s love is our true treasure.”
