Note: “Holy Trinity, Whom I Adore.” is a prayer of Saint Elizabeth of the Trinity.
Repeat this prayer for nine days…
O my God, Trinity whom I adore,
let me entirely forget myself that I may abide in You,
still and peaceful as if my soul were already in eternity;
let nothing disturb my peace nor separate me from You,
O my unchanging God,
but that each moment may take me further
into the depths of Your mystery!
Pacify my soul!
Make it Your heaven,
Your beloved home and place of Your repose;
let me never leave You there alone,
but may I be ever attentive,
ever alert in my faith,
ever adoring and all given up to Your creative action.
O my beloved Christ, crucified for love,
will that I might be for You a spouse of Your heart!
I would anoint You with glory,
I would love You – even unto death!
Yet I sense my frailty
and ask You to adorn me with Yourself;
identify my soul with all the movements of Your soul,
submerge me, overwhelm me,
substitute Yourself in me
that my life may become but a reflection of Your life.
Come into me as Adorer,
Redeemer and Saviour.
O Eternal Word, Word of my God,
will that I might spend my life listening to You,
will that I might be fully receptive to learn all from You;
in all darkness, all loneliness, all weakness,
may I ever keep my eyes fixed on You
and abide under Your great light;
O my Beloved Star,
fascinate me so that I may never
be able to leave Your radiance.
O Consuming Fire,
Spirit of Love,
descend into my soul
and make all in me as an incarnation of the Word,
that I may be to Him a super-added humanity
wherein He renews His mystery;
and You O Father,
bestow Yourself and bend down to Your little creature,
seeing in her only Your beloved Son
in whom You are well pleased.
O my ‘Three’, my All, my Beatitude, infinite Solitude,
Immensity in whom I lose myself,
I give myself to You as a prey to be consumed;
enclose Yourself in me that I may be absorbed in You
so as to contemplate in Your light
the abyss of Your Splendour!
