Just in Case Anyone was Wondering

As we enter the single moment of the Easter Triduum, let us consider, from the Holy Father's Palm Sunday homily, the purpose of life is love. In a way, this is almost one for the Duh file. Here's a truffle passage:
It requires me to give myself freely to Another - for truth, for love, for
God who, in Jesus Christ, goes before me and shows me the way. It is a question
of the fundamental decision no longer to consider usefulness and gain, my career
and success as the ultimate goals of my life, but instead to recognize truth and
love as authentic criteria. It is a question of choosing between living only for
myself or giving myself - for what is greater. And let us understand properly
that truth and love are not abstract values; in Jesus Christ they have become a
person. By following him, I enter into the service of truth and love. By losing
myself I find myself.
