Community Fellowship

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 watched a few minutes of this but there was nothing new and the delivery was boring.

 

There were never three Popes. There were three claimants but there could never be three Popes at once.

 

BTW If you ever go to Rome you must see Michaelangelo's Pieta, just inside St. Peter's on the right. It's stunning. I liked to stand stand and gaze at it when I was there.

Hi Bebe, I saw the Pieta when I was there, and it is magnificent as you have said. I just wish I could have gotten a little closer to it (but I understand why that's no longer possible). I only had about 1/2 of a day to see the Vatican, and that, as I'm sure you are well aware, is hardly enough time. It is a truly amazing place :)
