"God is love..

and he who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him”​ -

1 John 4:16 

"We have come to believe in God's love: in these words the Christian can express the fundamental decision of his life. Being Christian is not the result of an ethical choice or a lofty idea, but the encounter with an event, a person, which gives life a new horizon and a decisive direction." 

-Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI (Deus Caritas est, 1.1)
