comfort to humankind, whose
and kindness nourish us all,
care for those in trouble is as a
mother who cares for all her children ~
there when we call, stretching out your
put aside that which is harmful to us,
the web of fate in which we may be
even stopping the stars if they form a
pattern. All other deities, whether
or merciless, do reverence to Thee.
Apuleius, 2nd century, c.e.
