St. Denis's Prayer
You are wisdom, uncreated and eternal, the supreme first cause, above all being, sovereign Godhead, sovereign goodness, watching unseen the God-inspired wisdom of Christian people. Raise us, we pray, that we may totally respond to the supreme, unknown, ultimate, and splendid height of your words, mysterious and inspired. There all God’s secret matters lie covered and hidden under darkness both profound and brilliant, silent and wise. You make what is ultimate and beyond brightness secretly to shine in all that is most dark. In your way, ever unseen and intangible, you fill to the full with most beautiful splendor those souls who close their eyes that they may see. And I, please, with love that goes on beyond mind to all that is beyond mind, seek to gain such for myself through this prayer.
