  1. “Suppose, brethren, a man should make a ring for his betrothed, and she should love the ring more wholeheartedly than the betrothed who made it for her…Certainly let her love this gift; but if she should say ‘The ring is enough, I do not want to see his face again’, what would we say of her?…The pledge is given her by the betrothed just that, in his pledge, he himself may be loved. God, then, has given you all these things. Love Him who made them.”

    I admire St. Augustine’s way of putting things that focus on God’s passionate love for us. The above is just one example.
