Words of Saint Elizabeth of the Trinity, Discalced Carmelite

(Canonized a Saint today, October 16, 2016)

My mission in Heaven will be to draw souls, helping them to go out of themselves to cling to God, with a spontaneous, love-filled action, and to keep them in that great interior silence which enables God to make His mark on them, to transform them into Himself.

 O Mother, do not worry about me.  The good God has given me such grace that I lost all track of time.  This morning He spoke this word deep within me: “If anyone loves Me, My Father will love them; We will come to them and make Our home within them.”  At that very moment I experienced the truth of it.  I cannot describe how the three divine Persons revealed Themselves, but I saw Them holding loving converse within me and I still seem to see Them.  How great God is and how He loves us.

 It seems to me that I have found my Heaven on earth, because my Heaven is You, my God, and You are in my soul.  You in me, and I in You — this shall be my motto.

 Make my soul . . . Your cherished dwelling place, Your home of rest.  Let me never leave You there alone, but keep me there all absorbed in You, in living faith, adoring you.

 Here in Carmel, there is nothing, nothing but God.  He is all, He suffices, and one lives for Him alone and for His glory. . .This life of prayer and contemplation, interceding always for His people before the Face of God.
