O my God, Trinity Whom I adore, help me to forget myself entirely
Let us unite to make Him forget everything by the strength of our love
"I do not fear my weakness," wrote St. Elizabeth of the Trinity, a 19th c. Discalced Carmelite nun from Dijon, France. Her unique insight was her spiritual doctrine of the indwelling of the Holy Trinity in our souls.
Oh, Dios mío, Trinidad a quien adoro, ayudadme a olvidarme enteramente para establecerme en Vos, inmóvil y apacible, como si ya mi alma estuviera en la eternidad.

"When I am up above, will you let me help you, scold you even, if I see you are not giving everything to the Master? because I love you!"
Not just one person of the Holy Trinity finds his rest within us, but the entire Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
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.
“I do not fear my weakness; that’s what gives me confidence. For the Strong One is within me and His power is almighty.”
“It is this intimacy with Him “within” that has been the beautiful sun illuminating my life, making it already an anticipated Heaven; it is what sustains me today in my suffering.”
"Nothing tells us more about the love in God’s Heart than the Eucharist. This union, this consummation of Him in us and we in Him, is this not heaven on earth? "
“Here is the secret: forget self, give up self, ignore self, look at the Master, look only at Him, accept as coming directly from His love both joy and suffering; this places the soul on such serene heights!”
“How serious life is: each minute is given us in order to “root” us deeper in God, as Saint Paul says, so the resemblance to our divine Model may be more striking, the union more intimate.”
Behold the vessel of Laudem Gloriae, O Mother, what a splendid journey was made!
