Canterbury and is sometimes referred to as the "father of scholasticism." He
may be most famous for his "ontological proof" - an attempt to prove by logic
that God exists.
O Lord our God,
Grant us grace to desire you with our whole heart,
that so desiring we may seek and find you;
and so finding you; we may love you;
and loving you, we may hate those sins from which you
have redeemed us,
for the sake of Jesus Christ. Amen.
- St. Anselm of Canterbury (1033-1109), from PROSLOGION.
[Lord, thank you for seeking us before we knew to seek after you. Thank you
for loving us long before we ever loved you. Amen!]
