John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Police: Man kills son and daughter, both 10, then fatally shoots himself in Chicago

Recommended Posts


A man fatally shot his son and daughter, both 10 years old, then turned the gun on himself in their West Rogers Park home, according to Chicago police.

The bodies were discovered about 11 a.m. Monday after a nanny was unable to enter the house, police said. The nanny called the children’s mother, who is separated from the father. She gave permission for the landlord to enter the house, police said.

The landlord found the father, 45, in the hallway with a gunshot wound to the face, police said. The children, twins, were found elsewhere, both with gunshot wounds to the back of the head.

The boy was identified as Mason Sanders, the girl as Addison Sanders, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office. Their home address was in the 4900 block of North Marine Drive, according to the office. Next of kin of the father had not yet been contacted, so the office did not release his identity.

“Our condolences go out to the family affected by the senseless murder suicide,” chief Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi tweeted. “A father cowardly took the life of his two 10-year-old children before turning the gun on himself. The offender had no previous history with the Chicago Police Department.”

Police released no other information.
