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.

I tryed to read the Catechism of the Catholic Church and found it to be very haard to readtongue.png


Because it is quite difficult to read, the Compedium of The Catechism of The Catholic Church was produced (see peppermint's link in the OP). This is a simplifed version in question and answer format. It is laid out in the same sequence as the full Catechism and has references to the relevant passages of the full Catechism at the side of each paragraph. It is therefore quite easy to read it and then switch to the full Catechism for a more detail. It's also in a smaller format (just less than A5).
