May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace
as you trust in him, so that you may overflow
with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. - Romans 15:13
"He who enters
into the secret place of his own soul
passes beyond himself,
and does in very truth ascend to God.
Banish, therefore, from thy heart
the distractions of earth
and turn thine eyes to spiritual joys,
that thou mayest learn at last
to repose in the light
of the contemplation of God."
St. Albert the Great
