prayer

From Thomas a Kempis (The Imitation of Christ):

“Most sweet and loving Jesus, grant me to rest in You above every other creature; above all health and beauty, above all honor and glory, above all power and dignity, above all knowledge and wisdom, above all wealth and talent, above all joy and gladness, above all fame and praise, above all sweetness and consolation, above all hope and promise, above all merit and desire, above all the gifts and favors You offer and shower upon me, above all the happiness and joy the mind can perceive and understand… above all things visible and invisible. Above everything that is not You, my God.” Amen.
