Eros and Spiritual Love and Sentimentality

Eros is the relationship of love between man and woman.

Spiritual love is the blooming of the Holy Spirit in the person.

Sentimentality is a superficial play on the emotions of the self and other.

The relationship of spiritual love between the monk and God consummated in mystical prayer is supported by the Eros that the monk feels for God.

The monk avoids all sentimental behaviour.
