Prayer to the Holy Trinity by St Elizabeth of the Trinity

‎Prayer to the Trinity‎

O my God, Trinity whom I adore, help me to forget myself entirely that I may be established in you as still and as peaceful as if my soul were already in eternity. May nothing trouble my peace or make me leave you, O my unchanging one, but may each minute carry me further into the depths of your mystery. Prayer to the Holy Trinity

 

Give Peace to My Soul

Make it Your heaven, Your beloved dwelling place, and Your resting place. May I never leave You there alone, but be wholly present, my faith wholly vigilant, wholly adoring, and wholly surrendered to your creative action. 

O my beloved Christ, crucified by love, I wish to be a bride for Your Heart! I wish to cover You with glory; I wish to love You – even unto death! But I feel my weakness and ask You to clothe me with Yourself; to identify my soul with all the movements of Your soul, to overwhelm me, to possess me, to substitute Yourself for me that my life may be but a radiance of Your life. Come to me as Adorer, as Restorer, as Saviour.

O Eternal Word

Word of my God, I want to spend all my life listening to You, to become wholly teachable, that I may learn everything from you. Then through all nights, all voids, all helplessness, 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 Consuming Fire, Spirit of Love, come upon me and create in my soul a kind of incarnation of the Word; that I may be another humanity to 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.

A prayer to the Holy Trinity written by St Elizabeth in Carmel, Dijon – France, on November 21, 1904]
