Only in love can I find You, my God. In love the gates of my soul
spring open, allowing me to breath a new air of freedom and forget
my own petty self. In love my whole being streams forth out of the
rigid confines of narrowness and anxious self-assertion, which
make me a prisoner of my own poverty and emptiness. In love all
the powers of my soul flow out toward You, wanting never more to
return, but to lose themselves completely in You, since by Your love
You are the inmost center of my heart, closer to me than I am to
