Video – Fr Maximilian – The Cornerstone #33: Love for Love
St. Therese of the Child Jesus has said, "Love is repaid by love alone." Elsewhere it is said in simpler form: "Love for love," meaning God first offers us His love in the hope that we will respond by giving Him ours.
This principle of action and reaction is the heart of Bl. John Duns Scotus' teaching. God first acts by willing Christ, the God-man, and the God-man responds with His Heart aflame for the love and glory of the Father. We also see God's principle of action and reaction in the predestination of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Listen now as Father explains this eye-opening principle of "Love for love," "action and reaction," and how it plays out in all of creation, and in our lives.
