Love is the only thing that can fill hearts and bring people together. God is love. When we forget God, we lose hope and become unable to love others. That is why it is so necessary to testify to God’s presence so that others can experience it. The salvation of humanity depends on this, as well as the salvation of each of his loving sacrifice on the cross, Jesus opens up the way for every man and woman to come to know God and enter into a communion of love with him (Pope Benedict 18thOctober)
