In this episode of the guided lectio divina podcast, we’re using this prayer by St. Umilta of Faenza:
Kind Christ–you’re my only hope–come to me. Don’t be slow to visit my heart, which desperately needs your love. Fill it with divine grace. Join my mind and soul. Make them burn in you who are flame without smoke always, wholly resplendent.
Come to me and bring your love, gorgeous fire that makes all things bear fruit. You draw the seeds out of the dry ground and make them grow. Hear me, excellent sower. My heart only wants the seed of love from you. This seed grows instantly and produces the best fruit.
I beg only love from you. Come then, Jesus, sweet lover. Don’t dawdle!
