As yet my love is weak, my heart imperfect, and so I have great need
of your strength and comfort. Visit me often, I pray, and instruct me in the way of your
laws. Set me free from all evil passions, and heal my heart from all immoral desires. And
thus, healed and cleansed in spirit, may I learn how blissful it is to plunge into the
depths of your love.
Thomas à Kempis
