“O Jesus, how is it that I could not follow the path of the just Abel, that I could not present to you pure offerings, holy deeds and an unblemished sacrifice, by the purity of my life?

…Despite my faults, O Savior, I truly know that you are the Lover of us all.
You chastise those whom you love, and generous is your mercy; you behold
my tears, and you hasten to meet me, your prodigal.”
