Pope's Wednesday Catechesis
Love becomes truly Christian only when it is given to everyone without counting the cost. This can appear impossible, yet it is a constant summons to grow in our imitation of the Son of God, who loved us "to the end" (cf. Jn 13:1). In the words of the spiritual classic, "The Imitation of Christ," "love has its origin in God and so it can only find its rest in God, above and beyond all created things." May we who have known this love share it joyfully with all whom we meet.
