..."and a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the way of holiness; evil minded people shall not travel on it, but it shall be for those wayfarers who are traveling toward God. (Isaiah 35:8, adapted)

Love for God: Love without Measure, Burning without Discretion!

Lord Jesu, I ask Thee, give unto
me movement in Thy love without
measure; desire without limit;
longing without order; burning
without discretion. Truly the
better the love of Thee is, the
greedier it is; for neither by
reason is it restrained, nor by
dread distressed, nor by doom tempted.
