Love is the mark of the Lord's disciples, it stamps the servants of God, by it we recognize his apostles. Christ said: "This is how all will know you for my disciples." By what? Tell me. Was it by raising the dead or by cleansing lepers or by driving out demons? No. Christ passed over all these signs and wonders when he said: "This is how all will know you for my disciples: your love for one another."
