Prayer: Mechtild of Magdeburg

Ah, dear love of God, always embrace this soul of mine. For it pains me above all things when I am separated from your. Ah, love, do not allow me to grow cool, for all my works are dead when I can feel you no longer. Oh, love, you sweeten both suffering and need; you teach and console the true children of God.
