Archbishop Fulton Sheen, on love...

"Love implies knowledge:
The intellect sets up the goal or target. The will is the bow and the arrow combined directed to that target"

"Just as to speak means to produce a word and to flower means to produce blossoms, so to love is to breathe love, or to sigh or spirate"

"A kiss is a mere sign of love, but it is a giving of one's breath or spirit, which is inseparable from life itself."

The Person and the Family

"Aristotle points out that 'to live is to be' and that man is essentially a social animal. This is why you can make a strictly anthropological case for marriage.  To find ourselves we have to get out of ourselves. A couple need the interpersonal connections that happen in the intimacy of the home if they are to really flourish. We were not created to remain alone.  We are not what modern culture increasingly supposes: autonomous entities bouncing off one another."

 On the behavior and thinking rooted in turning our awesome religion of truth into some religion of "Opinion"

The reality here is the clarity in defining in context a type of "Liberalism".... (link found below).

What do I mean by ‘Liberalism?’
Liberalism in religion is the doctrine that there is no positive truth in religion, but that one creed is as good as another, and this is the teaching which is gaining force and substance daily. It is inconsistent with any recognition of any religion, as true. It teaches that all are to be tolerated, for all are matters of opinion. Revealed religion is not a truth, but a sentiment and a taste; not an objective fact, not miraculous; and it is the right of each individual to make it say just what strikes his fancy. Devotion is not necessarily founded on faith. Men may go to Protestant Churches and to Catholic, may get good from both and belong to neither. They may fraternize together in spiritual thoughts and feelings, without having any views at all of doctrine in common, or seeing the need of them. (Blessed John Henry Newman’s Roman Address of 1879 as quoted in “Letters to a Young Catholic” by George Weigel)
