“the only authentic way to recognize a true Christian, the true yardstick to use to recognize a Christian is not in how much the Christian knows but how much the Christian loves, for love is all that matters since God is love”

“Like the person who falls madly in love with someone and then can't help but write these corny love songs, like that we the Church we fall in love with God and we can't help ourselves, we try a thousand different ways to express the love that we are experiencing in our heart for God”
