May these holy days bring us all what we most need.

As Bulat Okudzhava says in his "Prayer of François Villon":

"...Almighty, please give to all of us
The things that we do not have:
Grant a brain to the wise man,
To the coward, grant a battle horse,
To the happy, give some money,
And don't forget to give something to me...

Let those striving for power,
Wield it to their heart's content.
Give a break to the generous - 
At least for a day or two;
Pray, give Cain repentance,
and remember me, too..."
