Love as Goodwill

20 Jul

Love between man and woman would be evil, or at least incomplete, if it went no farther than love as desire. For love as desire is not the whole essence of love between persons. It is not enough to long for a person as a good for oneself, one must also, and above all, long for that person’s good.

Karol Wojtyla (Bl. Pope John Paul II), Love and Responsibility
