Knowing is loving

path-on-stream-2

. . . if we knew him we would love him. “God is love,” as St. John said. He who does not love him does not know him, for how can we know love without loving him? Therefore it stands to reason that all those who only fear God, do not know him.

–Fenelon
(1651-1715)
