Graham Greene: God’s love

“Oh,” the priest said, “that’s another thing altogether—God is love.... We wouldn’t recognize that love. It might even look like hate. It would be enough to scare us—God’s love. It set fire to a bush in the desert, didn’t it, and smashed open graves and set the dead walking in the dark. Oh, a man like me would run a mile to get away if he felt that love around.”

—Graham Greene, The Power and the Glory (Harmondsworth: Penguin, 1971), pp. 199-200.

Man, what a good quote. I remember that quote from the first time I read The Power and Glory. Good stuff. Thanks for posting it.
