Lest one good custom should corrupt the world comfort thyself. What comfort is in me? I have lived my life, and that which I have done. May He within Himself make pure! Will thou If thou shouldst never see my face again. Pray for my soul. More things are wrought by prayer than this world dreams of. Wherefore let thy voice Rise like a fountain for me night and day.
