Daily Prayer

October 22, 2017

O My God,
in order that I may be a living act of perfect love,
I offer myself as a whole burnt offering
to your tender love.
Consume me continually,
letting my soul overflow
with the floods of infinite tenderness
that are found in you,
so that I may become a martyr
of your love.

Let this martyrdom make me ready to appear before you
and at last cause me to expire.
Let my soul cast itself without delay
into the everlasting arms of your merciful love.
O my beloved,
with every beat of my heart
I desire to renew this offering
an infinite number of times,
until that day when the shadows shall vanish
and I shall be able to retell my love
in an internal face-to-face with you.

Amen.
