St. Elizabeth of the Trinity Novena – Day 6

Saint Elizabeth of the Trinity speaks

I beg you, oh, mark everything with the seal of love! It all alone endures.

Letter 333 to Antoinette de Bobet
End of October 1906

Intention

For the grace to choose to practice the virtue of charity in all of my words and actions today

St. Paul speaks

“Keep alert, stand firm in your faith, be courageous, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love” (1 Corinthians 16:13–14).

NOVENA PRAYER

O Saint Elizabeth!
In your great love of God,
You were always so close
to your friends’ needs.
Now, in Heaven,
Face to face with the Lord,
Do intervene near Him
for the needs we recommend to you.

(Make your request)

Teach us how to abide,
in Love and Faith,
with the Holy Trinity
in the utmost of our heart.
Teach us how to radiate God’s Love
amongst men, in our everyday life
just as you did yourself,
so that we may be a praise of God’s glory.

Our Father…
(pray slowly, “be aware that you are with Him”)

Glory be…
(three times, in praise of the indwelling Trinity)

  1. So lovely. Reminiscent of our Holy Father’s famous, “In the evening of our life, we shall be judged on Love”.
