“Lord, touch me with lightning” | Blue Bucket of Gold

‘O Lady in whom my hope lives, and who suffered, for my salvation, to leave your footprints in Hell, of everything that I have seen, through your power and your goodness, I recognize the grace and the virtue. You have drawn me from slavery into freedom by all those paths, by all the means that were within your power. Guard your magnificence in me, so that my spirit, which you have made whole, may be pleasing to you, when from my body it is unknit.’ So I prayed: and she, far off as she seemed, smiled, and regarded me; then she returned to the eternal fountain.

—Dante, Paradiso Canto 31
