O Lord, my God, teach my heart where to see you,
how to see you,
where and how to find you.
You have made me and remade me,
and you have given me all the good things I have ever possessed
– and still I do not know you.
Teach me to seek you,
for I cannot seek you unless you teach me,
or find you unless you reveal yourself to me
Help me to seek you in desire,
help me to desire you in my seeking,
help me to find you by loving you,
help me to love you when I find you.
– St. Anselm of Canterbury, England 1033-1109
