Novena To St. Elizabeth Of The Trinity # 1

Day 1

Oh, may the Master reveal to you His Divine presence,
it is so suave and sweet,
it gives so much strength to the soul;
to believe that God loves us
to the point of dwelling in us,
to make Himself the Companion of our exile,
the Confidant, the Friend of every moment.

Concluding prayer for each day

O Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity,
In your great love for God,
You were always close to your friends in their needs.
Now that you are in heaven before the face of the Lord,
Intercede with him for the intentions we now commend to you.

Teach us, in faith and love,
To live with the Holy Trinity
In the depths of our heart.
Teach us to radiate the love of God to others
In our daily lives, as you did
In order to be a Praise of His Glory.

Our Father…

Hail Mary…

Glory Be…

Day 2

Oh, give yourself without ceasing to His immense love,
It is the consuming Fire that divinizes all.
In the center of your soul, in a profound silence,
Beneath the anointing of the Holy One recollect yourself often;
Thus you will arrive at that resemblance,
You will be no longer yourself, but only Christ.

Say the Concluding prayer of each day.

Say the Our Father, the Hail Mary and the Glory Be.

Day 3

It seems to me that nothing speaks more of the love
that is in the Heart of God than the Eucharist:
it is union, consummation;
it’s He in us, us in Him,
and isn’t this Heaven on earth?
It is Heaven in faith while waiting
the face-to-face vision so much desired.

Say the Concluding prayer of each day.

Say the Our Father, the Hail Mary and the Glory Be.

Day 4

The Master called the hour of His passion “His hour,”
the one He had come for,
the one He invoked with all His desire!
When a great suffering
or some very little sacrifice is offered us,
oh, let us think very quickly that “this is our hour,”
the hour when we are going to prove our love for Him
who has “loved us exceedingly,” as Saint Paul says.

Say the Concluding prayer of each day.

Say the Our Father, the Hail Mary and the Glory Be.

Day 5

If anyone were to ask me the secret of happiness,
I would say it is to no longer think of self,
to deny oneself always.
That is a good way to kill pride:
let it starve to death!
You see, pride is love of ourselves;
well, love of God must be so strong
that it extinguishes all our self-love.
St. Augustine says we have two cities within us,
the city of God and the city of me.
To the extent that the first increases,
the second will be destroyed.

Say the Concluding prayer of each day.

Say the Our Father, the Hail Mary and the Glory Be.

Day 6

It seems to me that the attitude of the Virgin
during the months that elapsed
between the Annunciation and the Nativity
is the model for interior souls,
those whom God has chosen to live within,
in the depths of the bottomless abyss.
In what peace,
in what recollection Mary lent herself
to everything she did!
How even the most trivial things were divinized by her!
For through it all the Virgin remained
the adorer of the gift of God!
This did not prevent her from spending herself outwardly
when it was a matter of charity;
the Gospel tells us that Mary went in haste
to the mountains of Judea
to visit her cousin Elizabeth.
Never did the ineffable vision that she contemplated within herself
in any way diminish her outward charity.

Say the Concluding prayer of each day.

Say the Our Father, the Hail Mary and the Glory Be.

Day 7

This Queen of virgins is also Queen of martyrs;
but again it was in her heart that the sword pierced,
for with her everything took place within!
Oh! How beautiful she is to contemplate
during her long martyrdom, so serene,
enveloped in a kind of majesty
that radiates both strength and gentleness.
She learned from the Word Himself
how those must suffer whom the Father has chosen as victims,
those whom He has decided to associate with Himself
in the great work of redemption,
those whom He “has foreknown
and predestined to be conformed to His Christ,”
crucified by love.

Say the Concluding prayer of each day.

Say the Our Father, the Hail Mary and the Glory Be.

Day 8

“Dwell in me.”
It is the Word of God who gives this order,
who expresses this desire.
Dwell in me, not for a few moments,
a few hours that must pass, but “dwell…”
in a manner that is permanent, habitual.
Dwell in me, pray in me, adore in me,
love in me, work, act in me.
Dwell in me to present yourself to all,
penetrate ever more deeply in this profundity.
It is truly there the “solitude
where God wants to draw the soul
in order to speak to it,”
as the prophet sang.

Say the Concluding prayer of each day.

Say the Our Father, the Hail Mary and the Glory Be.

Day 9

I think that in Heaven my mission will be
to draw souls by helping them to go out of themselves
to cling to God by a wholly simple and loving movement,
and to keep them in this great silence
within that will allow God to communicate Himself to them
and transform them into Himself.

Say the Concluding prayer of each day.

Say the Our Father, the Hail Mary and the Glory Be.
