Look. Every rational creature, every person, and every angel has two main strengths: the power to know and the power to love. God made both of these, but God is not knowable through the first one. To the power of love, however, God is entirely known, because a loving soul is open to receive God’s abundance. God’s very nature makes love endless and miraculous. God will never stop loving us. Consider this truth, and, if by grace you can make love your own, do. For the experience is eternal joy; its absence is unending suffering. (The anonymous 14th-century author of ‘The Cloud of Unknowing’)
