Preparing for the journey as Lent draws near...

O Lord my God
teach my heart
where and how to seek you,
where and how to find you.
O Lord you are my God
and you are my Lord
and I have never seen you.
You have made me and remade me,
and you have bestowed on me all the good things I possess
and still I do not know you.

I have not yet done that for which I was made.

Teach me to seek you
for I cannot seek you unless you teach me
or find you unless you show yourself to me.
Let me seek you in my desire,
let me desire you in my seeking.
Let me find you by loving you,
let me love you when I find you.

~~St Anselm~~

Beautiful Catherine+! Lovely sentiments.

Now that I've somewhat crawled out from beneath the stomach bug, I was finally able to come read it!
