Feast of the Presentation of Mary
My God, the soul you have placed within me is pure. You breathed of yourself into my flesh, creating and forming in me a deep awareness of your presence. It is you who constantly arouses the desire to live within me. Sometimes you take this hope from me, only to renew it again and again, that I may once more praise you, my God and God of my people. You are the origin of all that happens and every soul is a part of you. Praise are you Eternal One, constantly renewing life within me with your breath of love.
– A Jewish Prayer
