INFINITE LOVE“How much do you love me, Daddy?” a child asked his father affectionately.
The father separated his hands and showed the gap. But the child was not satisfied.
He asked again, “Only that much, Daddy?” The father spread his hands a little farther. “Is this enough?” he asked. Still the child was not satisfied.
Answering the repeated innocent inquiries of the child, he moved his hands further every time till he reached the maximum possible extent. Looking at the father with fully extended arms, the child remarked, “Daddy, now you look like Jesus on the Cross”.
