Seneca: We Adore You

We adore You, Framer of the Universe; Governor, Disposer, Keeper; You on whom all things depend; Mind of the world; You from whom all things spring; You by whose spirit we live; the Divine Spirit diffused through all; God supremely powerful, always present, above all other powers: we adore you.

 Seneca (c. 4 B.C.E-65 C.E.) was a Roman Stoic, government official, philosopher, and dramatist. His stoicism emphasized practical steps to confront life’s dilemmas, especially mortality. His dramas continue to inspire writers today.
