To Love Another
For one human being to love another human being: that is perhaps the most difficult task
that has been entrusted to us, the ultimate task, the final test and proof, the work for
which all other work is merely preparation . . . Loving does not at first mean merging, surrendering,
and uniting with another person—it is a high inducement for the individual to ripen . . .
to become world in oneself for the sake of another person; it is a great, demanding
claim, something that chooses one and calls one to vast distances
—Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926)
The joining of two individuals in marriage is a sacred trust, a bond that joins two who are
committed to each other in trust, love, and fidelity. Marriage is two people on their souls’ journey to wholeness.
