CQOD: 01/20/08 -- Rolle: prayer

Christian Quotation of the Day

January 20, 2008
Commemoration of Richard Rolle of Hampole, Writer, Hermit, Mystic, 1349
    From birth I have relied on you; you brought me forth from my mother's womb. I will ever praise you.
    -- Psalm 71:6 (NIV)

    Lord Jesu, I ask Thee, give unto me movement in Thy love without measure; desire without limit; longing without order; burning without discretion. Truly the better the love of Thee is, the greedier it is; for neither by reason is it restrained, nor by dread distressed, nor by doom tempted.
    ... Richard Rolle (1290?-1349), Fire of Love, 1343, tr. Richard Misyn, cap. XVII

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, set the love of You ablaze in my heart.
