The price of love is love. It cannot be evaluated. We search for it as if panning for gold. Not to have experienced love makes the search more desperate. The entire story of creation and salvation is centred on this belief. Yet, many have yet to hear and grasp the significance of this. When we do know the unconditional love God has for us it makes a difference. We can take spiritual comfort in it when we feel unloved. ‘Come me all you who labour and are heavy burdened, and I will give you rest’.

To know that ‘God is love’ is reassuring. However, for the poor and destitute it may not be much comfort unless love is coupled with justice. As Michael Paul Gallagher once put it: 'To claim to love Jesus but not to love your neighbour is not love’. Love demands demonstration. Mothers and Fathers do it, husbands and wives do it, brothers and sisters do it, friends do it, and carers do it, in many heroic and unconditional ways. We need to celebrate this love which is tangible and evident. It is Christian witness on a daily basis. And then there are those who go beyond the call of duty; the people go the extra mile.

‘Love’, as A.W. Richard Snipe wrote, ’is a lonely business…Experience teaches us that love involves inevitable risks, separations, conflicts and losses that are only intensified by the depth of our loves. ’True love can set us apart. It is no wonder Jesus was nailed to a cross.

In the end, as Alfred Lord Tennyson said: ‘Tis better to have loved and lost /Than never to have loved at all .’
