Hymn to Love
Angel in Sewanee Cemetery
Sewanee Theological Seminary
School of the South
Now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13:13
I have not come across an Angel shaped quite like this one, in the 1920s romantic style – especially with this beautiful quote from The Hymn to Love from Corinthians. The name at the foot said simply Bond.
We all share this bond of Faith, Hope, and Love… but without Love we are nothing. Love dares all things, conquers all things, believes all things. Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres (1 Corinthians 13:7). It is the backbone of Faith, the wings beneath Hope. We abuse it, throw it casually around and use it as a threat… but Love has a deep truth that is felt when we encounter it, that nothing else in life can touch.
