Christ is risen! Indeed He is truly risen!
Slow and tedious they had seemed, so sharp was my longing [...] in which to sing with every fibre of my being, ‘To you my heart tells its love: I have sought your face, O Lord, for your face will I seek.’
— St Augustine, Confessions IX.3(6)

Seven foes have feared you;

Only I remain, who

Know nothing but love

And would love you,

Will love you—
If it were only you.
— from ‘Do not touch me…’, by Timothy Jeffries Johnson
