A spring of love gushed from my heart
And I blessed them unaware:
Sure my kind saint took pity on me
And I blessed them unaware.
The selfsame moment I could pray;
And from my neck so free
The Albatross fell off, and sank
Like lead into the sea."
He is able to regain his ability to pray only after showing love to the “slimy creatures” around him, as he should have loved the albatross.
“For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you”
“Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.”
“and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.”
