I found this perspective on God’s love quite interesting:
If we were to take all the love in every heart of everyone on earth, and add it to all the love of all those who ever existed throughout history, then add the love of all saints in heaven, and all the angels, seraphim and cherubim, and pour all that love into one heart, and direct that love on ourselves, it would still fall infinitely short of the love God is pouring out on each one of us, right now. Because God is infinite, his love is not divided, with each of us receiving but a portion. We each receive the totality, the fullness of divine love, twenty-four hours a day, every day of our lives.
(Joseph Langford, Mother Teresa’s Secret Fire [Huntington, IN: Our Sunday Visitor, 2008], 92)
This reminds me of the doctrine of divine simplicity, where God’s essence cannot be divided, but must remain whole. Divine simplicity is why there can be the distinct persons of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and each person is God, but yet we remain with one God, not three. It makes sense that if God’s essence is love, and we receive that love, then we are not receiving part of God’s infinite love but the entirety of that love itself. I have found the ending prayer of St. Maria Faustina Kowalska’s Chaplet of Divine Mercy to echo this simplicity of God and his love: “. . . and with great confidence submit ourselves to Thy holy will which is Love and Mercy itself.”
