As for me, Lord Jesus, I am one of those who believe
in you because of Yourself. I believe in You because, with the help of Your grace, no image within me can replace or wipe Your image and because ne word, as much as Yours, can penetrate to the very depths of my heart. I believe in You because You have made me know the beauty of Your face... I believe in You because, for me, outside of You there is nothing.
