Why does matrimony have to be all or nothing? And why does human love have to be all or nothing? Why is it always total and where possible excessive?
Ans. Because every action of the God-man is the action of a divine Person. And if He is the prototype of human be-ing and human act-ing, then the human person can only be fulfilled if he gives it all. Human doing and willing in Christ is His very Self that is relation. Human and doing and willing in Christ is not accidental to a substance. They are constitutive of His Persona.
