As cold water is to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country.
All Commentaries on Proverbs 25:25 Go To Proverbs 25
Fructuosus of Braga
We have learned from the story in sacred Scripture how pleasing to a man is “good news from a far country.” And what other better news could we expect than the love of Christ, than the spotless profession and propagation of the catholic church, than the pure lives, successful work, and faithful doctrine of the friends of God and the bishops and priests of Christ? These, most blessed father, we confess that we vehemently yearn for and thirstily desire to learn.
