"If we live in 'the winds' of spiritual life above and are rooted in His ways, then we joyfully become [parents] to other people... The lives of those who are established like this are truly blessed. For Wisdom always agrees and rejoices with them. They find happiness daily in her alone. For the Lord rejoices in His saints. There is joy in heaven over those who are being saved, and Christ, like the father of the prodigal son, makes a feast for His rescued child."
—Gregory of Nyssa,
