QotD – There is no Why – 2.2.16

“This answer to the ‘why’ of Christ’s passion is really final and allows no further questions.  He loved us because he loved us—that’s all there is to it!  In fact, there is no ‘why’ to God’s love; it is a free gift.  It is the only love in the world that is truly and totally free, and that asks nothing for itself (he already has everything!) but only gives.” (Cantalamessa O.F.M. Cap., Raniero, The Fire of Christ’s Love: Meditations on the Cross, 17)
