Saint Elizabeth of the Trinity speaks
How serious life is: each minute is given us in order to “root” us deeper in God, as Saint Paul says.Letter 333 to Antoinette de Bobet
End of October 1906
For the grace to keep Christ present in everything I do and say this day
St. Paul speaks
“Conduct yourselves wisely toward outsiders, making the most of the time. Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer everyone” (Colossians 4:5-6).
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)
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.
(pray slowly, “be aware that you are with Him”)
(three times, in praise of the indwelling Trinity)
