This was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was made nothing which was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men; and the light fliineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

There was a man sent from God, whose name was 'John, This man came for testimony, to give testimony of the light, that all might believe through him. He was not the light; but to give testimony of the light. It was the true light, which enlightneth every man that cometh into this world.

The Words of St. Blosius, O Pelages Sanctav

[ocr errors]

Ocean of sweetness and divine Love, my God, make haste, and give thyself to me, that I may worthily give myself back to thee. Let me never rest here, but be ever soaring up. to thee, that in thee I may rest, and breathe forth my soul with an entire heart, and a full desire, and a most flaming affection; let me ever prefer thee my God, before all the creatures of the world, and for the love of thee let me renounce all things of a transitory delight. O the only and true joy of my soul. Feed me, O Lord, at the sacred table of thy divinity; this only thing I beg, I desire, that a most ardent and vehement love may penetrate my foul, and so replenish it, that it may be totally changed into thee. O most sweet Redeemer, grant, that with the love of thee I may be all on fire, and that That fire of divine love may totally consume me, and that I may but live in the sweet fruition of thee my God. Let me not feel, or know any other object than thee alone. O overflowing Sea of most sacred Divinity, draw me to thyself, and drown me there; take from me all the affections of my heart, and so apply to thyself, that I may perfectly be dead to all other objects but thee, O my God.
