Human love is hidden, both because its source lies in God's love and because no word or deed necessarily reveals love; any act can be done lovingly or unlovingly. This ethic is anticonsequentialist, since external achievements can be thwarted, yet love must be recognizable by its “fruits,” its activity. Fruits of love are the expression of grateful striving, but are nonmeritorious.

Keywords:   anticonsequentialist, ethic, fruits, hidden, love, nonmeritorious
