Confessions of St. Augustines

The modesty of a heart that confesses its weakness is more lovely than all the things I was so eager to know.

You{God} stir us up to take delight in your praise; for you have made us for yourself, and our heart is restless till it finds its rest in you.

My faith, O Lord, calls upon you; the faith that is your gift to me, which you have inspired through the humanity of your Son, and the ministry of him who proclaimed you.

Let me have a mighty love for you; in my inmost being let me hold tight to your hand, so that you may deliver me from every temptation to the very end. For you, O Lord, are my King and my God.
