Act of Love #3

O my God,

the true and only love of my soul,

what more couldst Thou do to induce me to love Thee!

Thou wast not content with dying for me;

Thou didst wish to institute this holy Sacrament,

to give Thyself entirely to me,

and thus unite Thy whole Heart

to the heart of a creature

so vile and ungrateful as I am.

And what is more,

Thou Thyself dost invite me to receive Thee;

Thou dost ardently desire that I should receive Thee.

O infinite love!

incromprehensible love!

a God wishes to give Himself to me!

My soul, dost thou believe all this?

What are thou doing,

or what hast thou to say?

O God,

infinitely amiable,

the only object worthy of all love,

I love Thee with my whole heart;

I love Thee above all things;

I love Thee more than myself -

more than my life!

Oh, that I could see Thee loved by all!

Oh, that I could make all hearts love Thee,

at much as Thou dost desire!

I love Thee,

O most amiable God;

and in loving Thee,

I unite my miserable heart to the heart of Seraphim,

to the heart of most holy Mary,

and to the Heart of Jesus Thy most holy Son.

Thus I love Thee,

O infinite Goodness,

with the love with which the Saints,

with which Jesus and Mary love Thee.
