And this love “is not sentimental, emotional, but the love of the Father who is the source of all life, the love of the Son who died on the cross and rose, the love of the Spirit who renews man and the world,” he stated.

  Yet Christ remains the center, not the Sucessor of Peter: Christ, Christ is the centre.
