First Reading for Common of Virgins – Daily Catholic Mass Reading

Song of Songs 8:6-7

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.
