He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. 1 John 4:8
To love God above all things is natural to man and to very nature, not only rational but irrational, and even to inanimate nature, according to the manner of love which can belong to each creature.
—St. Thomas Aquinas (Feast Day, January 28), Summa Theologica, First Part of the Second Part, Question 109, Article 3
