“Your testimonies are wonders,
therefore my soul has cherished them.
Your opening works illuminate,
making simpletons understand.
I opened my mouth an d swallowed deeply,
because I lust for your commandments.
Turn to me and favor me,
as is just for those who love Your Name.”
“Dispose yourself to patience rather than consolation, and to bear the cross rather than to rejoice.” Thomas a Kempis
