Essence of Love
Love is placing the needs of the other before self. Love is altruism in action, whether that be the love we see manifest now in the new Pope for the Church (and beyond that for humanity), the love of a mother for her child, or a man for his wife. The motives of true love are always pure and to the extent we still reflect the image of the Creator, love is what has sustained mankind. The world does not need court decisions defining marriage, but more decency kindled by authentic love.
