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.

Vatican Offers Technical Expertise to Rebuild Notre Dame

The Vatican culture minister said Tuesday one of the most valuable things the Vatican can offer toward rebuilding Notre Dame cathedral will be technical expertise.

Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi told reporters that the Vatican would be able to offer some design and engineering expertise based on collections in the Vatican Museums in order to help rebuild Notre Dame’s roof. The cathedral’s upper roof, which was made of lead sheets placed over a wooden truss structure, burst into flames and burned for hours on Monday, likely due to an accident related to roof renovation efforts.

“I think one of the greatest contributions the Holy See can make … will be above a technical one because we have, for example, the Vatican Museums,” Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi said according to Reuters. “We have the type of know-how that the whole world recognizes as being of a high quality. That is why I think an eventual future offer by the Holy See will be significant. We could take part in some specific areas (of restoration).”

The fire destroyed the roof and the cathedral’s spire. French President Emmanuel Macron declared before the fire’s end that France would rebuild Notre Dame.

Despite the inferno, Notre Dame’s stained glass windows miraculously survived, as did a cross positioned behind the altar. First responders also formed a human chain to save Christ’s Crown of Thorns, the sacraments, and several priceless works of art.
