Love that is from Person to Person

image

“Love has not arisen from earth, but is granted from heaven. St Cassian said, ‘Love belongs exclusively to God, and those men who have renewed in themselves the image and the likeness of God.’ Conscious love refers to the conscious person and not to a principle or an idea or an impersonal creation, but to personhood. Where there is no reciprocity in love, there is no love. But a principle or an idea or a creation, be it of God or of man, cannot love us, though we may love it. Of that love we are not speaking, but of the love that is from person to person which is ‘indivisible and without confusion.'”

– St Nikolai Velimirovich, A Century on Love
