a prayer from St. Clare

What you are doing, may you keep on doing and do not stop.
But with swiftness, agility, and unswerving feet,
may you go forward with joy and security
knowing that you are on the path of wisdom and happiness.
Believe nothing, and agree with nothing
that will turn you away from this commitment.
Nothing should be allowed to prevent you
from offering yourself to the Most High
in the perfection to which the Spirit of God has called you.

--from an e-mail from Paraclete Press, promoting their book The St. Clare Prayer Book.
