This article examines the strand in the tradition that depicts our sense of kinship in affliction and redemption. It first calls attention to love as such kinship by reading Thomas Aquinas's discussion of mercy as it relates to charity (particularly in the Prima Pars 20-1 and the Secunda Secundae 30 of the Summa Theologiae). It then reads two authors who elicit love by attention to the cross: Julian of Norwich and Martin Luther.

Keywords: love; kinship; Thomas Aquinas; Julian of Norwich; Martin Luther
