"O God our God, grant us grace to desire you with a whole heart,
so that desiring you we may seek and find you; and so finding you, may love you; and loving you may hate those sins which separate us from you, for the sake of Jesus Christ." ~ St Anselm of Canterbury(11th century, during William the Conqueror and Henry I)
