'O Jesus, You are the light
for those who open their eyes to see You;
but for those who shut their eyes,
You are a stumbling block
against which they break themselves....
'You would have enlightened them
with Your truth if they had humbly
asked You, but in their pride
they did not welcome Your light...
'When Your light is scorned,
we no longer heed it;
a dense fog covers it, and our passions
completely hide it from our eyes.'
