Wood Carved Crosses

What, my friends, do we think love is if not fire? And what is sin if not rust? Hence it is said that 'many sins are forgiven her because she has loved much' (Lk. 7:47). This means she has completely burned away the rust of sin because she is mightily aflame with the fire of love. The more the heart of a sinner is consumed by the fire of love, the more fully is the rust of sin consumed.
St. Gregory the Great
