You are Christ,
my Holy Father,
my Tender God,
my Great King,
my Only Master,
my Best Helper,
my Most Beautiful and my Beloved,
my Living Bread,
my Leader to my Country,
my True Light,
my Holy Sweetness,
my Straight Way,
my Excellent Wisdom,
my Pure Simplicity,
my Peaceful Harmony,
my Entire Protection,
my Everlasting Salvation.
Christ Jesus, Sweet Lord,
why have I ever loved,
why in my whole life
have I ever desired anything except You,
Jesus my God?
Where was I when I was not in spirit
Now, from this time
do you, all my desires, grow hot,
and flow out upon the Lord
run... you have been tardy until now;
hasten where you are going;
seek Whom you are seeking.
may he who loves You
not be an anathema;
may he who loves You
not be filled with bitterness.
O, Sweet Jesus,
may every good
feeling that is fitted for Your praise,
love You, delight in You, adore You!
God of my heart,
and my Portion, Christ
may my heart faint away in spirit,
and may You be my Life
May the live coal of Your Love
grow hot within my spirit
and break forth into a perfect fire;
may it burn incessantly on the altar of my heart;
may it glow in my innermost being;
may it blaze in hidden recesses of my soul;
and in the days of my consummation
may I be found consummated with You!

Come, virgins chaste; pure brides, draw near:
Let Earth exult and Heaven hear
The Hymn that grateful accents raise,
Our song of joy in Rita's praise.
By fast her sinless frame is weak;
Her livid flesh the scourges streak.
In pity for her Savior's woes,
Her days and even nights are closed. ... continue reading
