Love then is the giving of self, and as long as we have a body and are working out our salvation, it will always be synonymous with sacrifice, in the Christian sense of the word. Love sacrifices naturally just as the eye sees and the ear hears. That is why we speak of "arrows" and "darts" of love--something that wounds. The bridegroom who loves will not give to his bride a ring of tin or of brass, but one of gold or of platinum, because the gold or platinum ring represents sacrifice--it costs something. The mother who sits up all night nursing her sick child does not call it hardship but love.


Bishop Fulton J. Sheen
