"O Christ, who rules the power of the sea and quells its raging waves, come near and help me! Scatter the nations that delight in war, and overcome them in Your strength. Display Your mighty power, I pray, and throw Yourself glorious in might; I have no hope nor refuge but in You, O Lord my God." -- Thomas à Kempis. "The Imitation of Christ." Trans. Leo Sherley-Price. London: Penguin Group, 1952, 140. Note: Book III, Chapter 34.
