Prologue (Cont.)

And the Lord, seeking his laborer 
in the multitude to whom He thus cries out,
 
says again,
 
“Who is the one who will have life,
 
and desires to see good days” (Ps. 33[34]:13)?
 
And if, hearing Him, you answer,
 
“I am the one,”
 
God says to you,
 
“If you will have true and everlasting life,
 
keep your tongue from evil
 
and your lips that they speak no guile.
 
Turn away from evil and do good;
 
seek after peace and pursue it” (Ps. 33[34]:14-15).
And when you have done these things,
 
My eyes shall be upon you
 
and My ears open to your prayers;
 
and before you call upon Me,
 
I will say to you,
 
‘Behold, here I am'” (Ps. 33[34]:16; Is. 65:24; 58:9).

What can be sweeter to us, dear ones, 
than this voice of the Lord inviting us?
Behold, in His loving kindness
the Lord shows us the way of life.
