From Today's Office of Readings

"Therefore, we ask that we may know what we love, 
since we ask nothing other than that you give us yourself. 
For you are our all: our life, our light, our salvation, 
our food and our drink, our God. Inspire our hearts, I ask you, Jesus, 
with that breath of your Spirit; wound our souls with your love, 
so that the soul of each and every one of us may say in truth: 
Show me my soul’s desire, for I am wounded by your love."

~~ St. Columban

This jumped out at me too. Really a lovely one. And coming 2 days after Augustine' "Late Have I loved thee", and three days after Monica's "remember me at the altar of the Lord", it's been liturgical poetry week.
