O my God, Trinity I adore, help me to totally set myself aside in order to establish myself in you, motionless and tranquil as if I were already in eternity. I want nothing to disturb my peace or even move away from you, or my Inalterable, but that every minute you take me further in the depths of your mystery. Pacify my soul, make your sky, your favorite home and the place of your rest. I will never have to leave you in solitude, but instead be present whole and alert in my faith, all adoring and totally abandoning your creative action.
O my beloved Christ, crucified for love, I would like to be a bride for your Heart, I would like to cover you with glory, I would like to love you … until you die! But I realize my helplessness and I ask you to “clothe me of yourself”, to identify my soul with all the impulses of your soul, to submerge myself, to invade me, to substitute you for me, so that my life may be only an irradiation of your life. Come to me as an Adorer, as a Repairer and as a Savior. O Eternal Word, the Word of my God, I want to spend my life listening to you, I want to make myself totally docile to your teaching to learn everything from you. Then, through all the nights, all the emptiness, all the impotences, I want to stop you forever and dwell under your great light; or my beloved Astro, fascinate me so that he can no longer come out of your radiance.
O Fire that consumes, Spirit of love, “come into me”, so that in my soul a kind of incarnation of the Word may be fulfilled: let it be for him an extra humanity in which he can renew all his mystery. And you, Father, bent towards your poor creature, “cover her with your shadow”, seeing only in her the “Beloved in which you have placed all your complacency”.
Or my Three, my All, my Beatitude, infinite Solitude, the Immensity in which I lose myself, I abandon myself to you as a prey. Bury yourself in me to make me bury you, waiting to contemplate in your light the abyss of your greatness.
(S. Elisabetta della SS. Trinità)
