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!
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?
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.
