My prayer is but a cold affair, Lord, because my love burns with so small a flame, but you who are rich in mercy will not mete out to [my friends] your gifts according to the dullness of my zeal, but as your kindness is above any human love so let your eagerness to hear be greater than the feeling in my prayers. Do this for them and with them, Lord, so that they may speed according to your will, and thus ruled and protected by you, always and everywhere, may they come at last to glory and eternal rest, through you who are living and reigning God, through all ages. Amen.
