A letter written to Rod Dreher is on this topic and includes the following (my emphasis) ...
This being my birthday, I am reflecting upon the past year and more.
What I have learned more than anything else this past year is both that "only love matters" and that many people have no experience of love; such people spread a great deal of misery, betrayal and pain.
This is hard to comprehend, hard for those of us who have been blessed - blessed with families that were more or less loving, with spouses who have loved us deeply and whom we have loved, with good friends along the way, with a vocation that we have loved and that has somehow loved us back.
What gives us joy in life is not our two-car garages, our suburban ranch-style houses, our bank accounts or our gadgets. What gives us joy is love - being loved and giving love. And love is like health - when it's there we tend not to notice it, to take it for granted. When it's not there, the pain can be intense.
It is hard for those of us who have known love - who have known God - to understand the pain of those who really haven't.
We assume God. We count on love. We forget that people exist like the writer of the letter to Rod Dreher, who would gladly fly planes into American buildings in order to express their rage. We look with disgust at girls like Melissa, who can't imagine herself ever worthy of love and who voluntarily endure abuse and call it love. We tear our hair out at atheists who make it their life's goal to deny that anything really exists or that anything is worth existing, including love or self-sacrifice. We trust our episcopacy to protect our children, not realizing that behind the mask of piety that many of them wear lurks (for some) a culture feeding on hedonism and perversion, and not on love - certainly not on love for natural and innocent things like children or even normal, happy things like an attraction to women.
And we are in a Church that has a dreadful subculture of "Radical Catholic Reactionaries" whose one common thread is not love of Latin or a Puritan streak or a hatred of Jews, but an utter contempt for the Christian commandment, "Love one another". This is behind the right wing Catholic anger at Pope Francis - for he dares to preach and live this shocking thing called love, in ways that unsettle and disturb us.
God is love. Not the "luv" of indulgence preached by false prophets, but a love that includes judgment and mercy both, a love that made us and that sustains us, a love in whom we live and move and have our being (Acts 17:28). It is a love that condemns sin, for sin keeps us from love. It is a love that embraces the cross, for bearing the cross is the expression of love. It is a love that makes the world, that gives the world the life of His only son, that re-makes the world.
It is a love that is no small thing.
