Cloud of Unknowing: that I may perfectly love Thee
Feast of Patrick, Bishop of Armagh, Missionary, Patron of Ireland, c.460
All my longings lie open before you, O Lord;
my sighing is not hidden from you.
—Psalm 38:9 (NIV)
God, unto whom all hearts be open, and unto whom all will speaketh, and unto whom no privy thing is hid. I beseech Thee so for to cleanse the intent of mine heart with the unspeakable gift of Thy grace, that I may perfectly love Thee, and worthily praise Thee.
... The Cloud of Unknowing 14th century, ed. Evelyn Underhill, prologue (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
Lord, grant that I may be cleansed of sin.
