Disinterested love

Someone sent me a link to this really nice discussion by John Crosby of disinterested love and von Hildebrand. The idea is that it is a misunderstanding of the nature of the person to think that our love should seek no return. (Of course, in a way, this should be obvious to a Christian, since God's love is the paradigm of love, and God's love for us is precisely manifested in the lengths to which he goes to--including death on the cross--in order to get us to reciprocate.)
