In the Beatitudes Christ said three things will carry us through any challenge or cross we have to bear. They are faith, hope and love. And the greatest of these is love. You can add any word you like to it and never change its base meaning; even unloved - has to have its opposite LOVED to exist.
Just look at what the word can do. Speak it every day and it will infect your mind then your heart and spread to all who are around you. Of course, without LOVE, opposite OF hate, it cannot exist. Do we therefore have an enigma?
