Write Your blessed name, O Lord, upon my heart,
there to remain so indelibly engraved,
that no prosperity,
no adversity shall ever move me from Your love.
Be to me a strong tower of defence,
a comforter in tribulation,
a deliverer in distress,
a very present help in trouble and a guide to heaven
through the many temptations and dangers of this life. Amen.
Thomas Kempis (1380 – 1471)
