“May nothing distract me from You, neither noise nor diversions. O, my Master, I would so love to live with You in silence. But what I love above all is to do Your will, and since You want me still to remain in the world, I submit with all my heart for love of You. I offer you the cell of my heart; may it be Your little Bethany. Come rest there; I love you so I would like to console You, and offer myself to You as a victim. O my Master, for You, with You.”

St. Elizabeth of the Trinity
