St. Elizabeth, who had a devout love of the Trinity, composed this brief and beautiful prayer.

On the solemnity of the Ascension of Jesus in 2000, St. John Paul II ended his homily with a prayer of St. Elizabeth of the Trinity.

St. Elizabeth was a Carmelite nun in the early 20th century and is often compared to St. Therese of Lisieux.

Here is a short prayer of adoration to the Trinity, asking God to dwell within her.

O my God, Trinity whom I adore,
help me to forget myself entirely
that I may be established in you
as still and peaceful as if my soul were already in eternity.
Give peace to my soul; make it your heaven,
your beloved dwelling and your resting place.
O my Three, my All, my Beatitude, infinite Solitude,
Immensity in which I lose myself,
I surrender myself to you,
until I depart to contemplate in your light the abyss of your greatness.
