March 10th: The Most Perfect Way.

In the first of his homilies on the Song of Songs Gregory explains that it concerns ‘the most blessed and most perfect way of salvation – I mean which comes through love’. Some people seek salvation because they fear punishment and some because they desire rewards, but the Song of Songs speaks to those who ‘love with their whole heart and soul and strength not something else, something that comes from the Giver, but that very One who is the source of all good things.’
