"My light, you see my conscience, because 'Lord, before you is all my desire', and if my soul wills any good, you gave it to me.
Lord, if what you inspire is good, or rather because it is good, that I should want to love you,
give me what you have made me want:
grant that I may attain to love you as much as you command...
Perfect what you have begun and
grant me what you have made me long for,
not according to my deserts, but out of your kindness that came first to me."
(Anselm of Canterbury, 1033-1109)
