This is definitely the proper kind of love, ironically, it's very similar to the kind that motivated Thrawn in Star Wars to go into the military, I strongly believe: a brotherly kind, fraternal to the core, totally chaste and celibate, but also extremely sacrificial in nature.
His, and yes, I do mean Christ here, His kind also requires our consent of some form or another to work. That's the prerequesite detail for Him to work in our lives: we have to agree to it, some way or another, even the mere soul consenting, telepathically, as it were, is sufficient for Him to work His miracles in our lives.
What's the biggest daily or weekly miracle He does? I dare say it's the sacrament of Penance, the forgiveness of sins, but He may well disagree... that's for discussion to suss out, though.
