Saint John Neumann: "Love is of God"

everyone who loves is begotten by God and knows God

-- 1 Jn 4:7-10

But St. John goes even further when he affirms that "God is love": God's very being is love. By sending his only Son and the Spirit of Love in the fullness of time, God has revealed his innermost secret: God himself is an eternal exchange of love, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and he has destined us to share in that exchange.

-- CCC 221
