"It is right, brothers, that we must always long for, seek and love the Word of God on high, the fountain of wisdom. According to the Apostle's words all the hidden treasures of wisdom and knowledge are in him, and he calls the thirsty to drink.
"If you thirst, drink of the fountain of life; if you are hungry, eat the bread of life. Blessed are they who hunger for this bread and thirst for this fountain, for in so doing they will desire ever more to eat and drink. For what they eat and drink is exceedingly sweet and their thirst and appetite for more is never satisfied. Though it is ever tasted it is ever more desired. Hence the prophet-king says: Taste and see how sweet, how agreeable is the Lord."
