Desire for the Vision of God    -     Saint Anselm

Insignificant man, escape from your everyday business for a short while, hide for a  moment from your restless thoughts. Break off from your cares and troubles and be less concerned about your tasks and labors. Make a little time for God and rest a while in him.

Enter into your mind's inner chamber. Shut out everything but God and whatever helps you to seek him; and when you have shut the door, look for him. Speak now to God and say with your whole heart: I seek your face; your face, Lord, I desire.

Lord, my God, teach my heart where and how to seek you, where and how to find you.

(Prayer of the Church, Friday of 1st week of Advent)
