O Eternal Word, Word of my God, I want to spent my life listening to You, to become wholly teachable that I may learn all from You. Then, through all nights, all voids, all helpnessness, I want to gaze on You always and remain in Your great light. O my Beloved Star, so fascinate me that I may not withdraw from Your radiance.
O consumating Fire, Spirit of Love, "come upon me," and create in my soul a kind of humanity for Him in which He can renew His whole Mystery. And You, O Father, bend lovingly over Your poor little creature; "cover her with Your shadow," seeing in her only the "Beloved in whom You are well pleased".
O my Three, my All, my Beatitude, Infinite Solitude, Immensity in which I lose myself, I surrender myself to You as Your prey. Bury Yourself in me that I may bury myself in You until I depart to contemplate in Your light the abyss of Your greatness. (Bl Elizabeth of the Trinity, 1904, Personal notes)
