Love is the Greatest Virtue

 ...If you lay down foundations and build walls, but do not put on a roof, you leave it all useless. In the same way, if you acquire every virtue except love, they are all useless and senseless. Though the roof cannot be constructed without supporting walls.
     The Lord therefore grants His inheritance to those who have sealed the other virtues with loving deeds, who either ascended to love by way of a blameless life or fled to it for refuge through repentance.
                                                             St. Gregory Palamas
