First Reading for the Common of Virgins

Song of Songs 8:6-7

When it is not the Easter season

Summary: Love is described as powerful and enduring, impossible to extinguish even by the greatest waters. It's so valuable that wealth cannot buy it; such an attempt would be scorned.

The Unquenchable Nature of Love

Set me as a seal on your heart, as a seal on your arm;
For stern as death is love, relentless as the nether world is devotion;
Its flames are a blazing fire.

Deep waters cannot quench love, nor floods sweep it away.

Were one to offer all he owns to purchase love, he would be roundly mocked.
