An Ethic of Love

“Love without justice leads to rivalry, and eventually to hate. Justice without love is devoid of the humanising forces of compassion and mercy. We need both. This unique ethical vision – the love of God for humans and of humans for God, translated into an ethic of love towards both neighbour and stranger – is the foundation of Western civilisation and its abiding glory.”
