Set me as a seal upon Your heart, as a seal upon Your arm; for love is strong as death, jealousy is cruel as the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire, a most vehement flame. Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it. If a man offered for love all the wealth of his house, it would be utterly scorned. (Song of Solomon 8:6-7)
Lord, as we recall the memory of Saint Scholastica, we ask that by her example we may serve you with love and obtain perfect joy.
