Bishop Paul-Andre Durocher of the Diocese of Gatineau will share key concepts from and his insight on C.S. Lewis' book, “The Four Loves.” This classical book explores the nature of love from a Christian and philosophical perspective through thought experiments.

Lewis contrasts three elements of love: “need-love”, “gift-love”, and “appreciative love”. He then explores the nature of pleasure, distinguishing “need-pleasures,” such as water for the thirsty, from “pleasures of appreciation, such as the love of nature. Lewis goes on to counterpart that three-fold, qualitative distinction against the four broad types of love: storge, philia, eros, and agape. In the remaining four chapters, Lewis treats love under four categories, based in part on the four Greek words for love: affection, friendship, eros, and charity. Lewis states that just as Lucifer (a former archangel) perverted himself by pride and fell into depravity, so too can love — commonly held to be the arch-emotion — become corrupt by presuming itself to be what it is not. Finally, Bishop Durocher will apply the four types of love to our various relationships and offer practical advice on how to best love our fellow human beings in each type of relationship.
