Love, after all, has made you come [to church]; but love of what? If love of me, that is fine; for I do want to be loved by you—but I do not want to be loved just for myself. Because I love you in Christ, please, therefore, love me back in Christ, and may our mutual love groan to God: for that love is the groaning of the Dove.
