Thank you sooo much for doing this!<br />agape, which, as we have seen, becomes the typical expression for the biblical notion of love.<br />No longer is it self-seeking, a sinking in the intoxication of happiness; instead it seeks the good of the beloved: <br />Marriage based on exclusive and definitive love becomes the icon of the relationship between God and his people and vice versa. God's way of loving becomes the measure of human love <br />PHILIA<br />Love of God and love of neighbour have become one: in the least of the brethren we find Jesus himself, and in Jesus we find God.<br />theFirst Letter of John shows that such love is explicitly demanded. The unbreakable bond between love of God and love of neighbour is emphasized.Saint John's words should be interpreted to mean that love of neighbour is a path that leads to the encounter with God, and that closing our eyes to our neighbour also blinds us to God<br /> <br />
