00:09:19 under the banner that bears your mark,
00:09:23 and now, having abandoned your novitiate,
00:09:28 he thinks he has turned his back on You.
00:09:33 For his mission, as he thinks, is not to stand and wait,
00:09:38 but to conquer and possess.
00:09:41 As if there was anything that did not belong to You,
00:09:46 and as if he could be somewhere You were not.
00:09:51 But, Lord, it is not easy to escape You,
00:09:56 and if he does not follow You in light,
00:09:59 let him follow You in darkness.
00:10:02 And if not for what he has that is direct,
00:10:04 therefore may he go in indirection.
00:10:07 And if not for what he has simple,
00:10:10 let him go by what is manifold
00:10:12 and laborious and complicated.
