Show me, O Lord, your mercy, and delight of my heart with it. Let me find you whom so lovingly I seek. See, here is the person whom the robbers seized and manhandled, and left half-dead on the road to Jericho. You can do what the kindly Samaritan could not do. Come to my aid! I am the sheep who wandered off into the wilderness. Look for me and bring me back home to your fold. Do with me whatever you will, that I may be with you all the days of my life, and praise you, in the company of all your friends for ever. Amen (St Jerome)
