Patristic Quote of the Day

Love is first among all the activities connected with virtue and all the commandments of the law. If, therefore, the soul ever attains this love, it will need none of the others, having reached the fullness of its being. It seems that love alone preserves in itself the character of the divine blessedness.—St. Macrina (Sister of St. Gregory of Nyssa), The Teaching of Macrina On the Soul and the Resurrection
