BY THE LIGHT of faith I have acquired wisdom in the wisdom of the Word, your only begotten Son. In the light of faith I am strong, constant, and persevering. In the light of faith I hope. Do not allow me to faint by the way. This light, without which I should still walk in darkness, teaches me the road. …Truly this light is a sea, for the soul revels in you, eternal Trinity, the Sea of Peace.
