Kind Christ, you are my only hope. Come to me.
Don't be slow to visit my heart, which desperately
needs your love. Fill it with divine grace. Join my
mind and soul. Make them burn in You who are
flame without smoke always, wholly resplendent.
- Umilta of Faenza, "Sermons"
Umilta of Faenza founded an order of nuns in the
1600's. She was also an anchoress and lived for
12 years as a hermit.
