Love part VI

Follows Love part V

Love of another person is the reflection of true knowledge upon this person, while knowledge is revelation of the Trihypostatic Truth to the heart, i.e., the abiding in the soul of God’s love of man: “If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us” (1 John 4:12). We thus enter with Him not only into an impersonal, providential-cosmic relationship, but also into a personal father-son communion.
Fr. Pavel Florensky
