Self-offering to the Trinity (st. Theresa of Lisieux)

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 beleoved, with every beawt 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.
