Grant me most sweet and loving Jesus
to rest in You above every other creature
above all health and beauty
above all glory and honor
above all power and dignity
above all fame and praise
above all sweetness snd consolation
above all hope and promise
above all merit and desire
above all gifts and favors You give and shower upon me
above all happiness and joy that the mind can understand and feel
and finally above all angels and archangels
above all the hosts of heaven
above all things visible and invisible
and above all that is not You my God.
(Thomas `a Kempis, The Imitation of Christ)
