Amoris Laetitia - Par. 114

Love believes all things

114.  Panta pisteúei.  Love believes all things.  Here "belief" is not to be taken in its strict theological meaning, but more in the sense of what we mean by "trust".  This goes beyond simply presuming that the other is not lying or cheating.  Such basic trust recognizes God's light shining beyond the darkness, like an ember glowing beneath the ash.
