Happy is the soul that longs for the food of righteousness andthirsts for this kind of drink; it would not seek such things if it hadnot already savoured their delight. When the soul hears the voiceof the Spirit saying to it through the prophet: Taste and see that
the Lord is good, it has already received a portion of God’s
goodness, and is on fire with love, the love that gives joy of theutmost purity. It counts as nothing all that belongs to time; it isentirely consumed with desire to eat and drink the food of righteousness. The soul lays hold of the true meaning of the firstand great commandment: You shall love the Lord God with your whole heart, and your whole mind and your whole strength, for tolove God is nothing else than to love righteousness.-From a Homily by St. Gregory the Great
