In the thirteenth chapter of his first letter to the Corinthians, St. Paul sings a hymn to love. He tells us that love is “patient, gentle, kind, not snobbish” and that it “never fails.” Love, after all, is what God is: willing the good of the other as other. When we love, therefore, we are sharing in the very life of God.
