"We were made to receive love, and we have. Every day we should thank God for the love we have already known. For the love that has made us who we are. The love that is shown us what is truly important in life.
We need to thank the Lord for the love we have received from our families, our friends, our teachers, and all those people in our lives who have helped us to realize how precious we are in their eyes, and in the eyes of God. We were also made to give love, to make the inspirational for all we do, and the most enduring thing in our lives."
Pope Benedict XVI
