Lord, you who are the Father of the orphan and the judge of the widow, help me. Holy Spirit, inspire me.
Then I cried out: Your love, Lord, and the hatred of sin, your love, Lord, and the hatred of sin.…
I fell on my knees and prayed the prayer: Lord, you who are the Father of the orphan and the judge of the widow, have mercy on me. Lord help me.
I wept and repeated the prayer: Lord, your love and the hatred of sin, for half an hour until it was time for mental prayer; I could do nothing else, which made me feel a great peace.
