Holy Trinity - by COECKE VAN AELST, Pieter - from Museo del Prado, Madrid . . . . The Role of the Father is Twofold. On the one hand, He is taking His Son back, thus accepting Jesus' Sacrifice for Mankind. Yet, the very same gesture serves to Present and Recommend this Offering.

Prayer to the HolyTrinity

vela-c2.gif (2466 bytes) O my God, Trinity Whom I adore; help me to forget myself entirely that I may be established in You as still and as peaceful as if my soul were already in Eternity. May nothing trouble my Peace or make me leave You, O my Unchanging One, but may each minute carry me further into the depths of Your Mystery. Give Peace to my soul; make it Your Heaven, Your beloved dwelling and Your resting place. May I never leave You there alone but be wholly present, my Faith wholly vigilant, wholly adoring, and wholly surrendered to Your creative Action.

vela-c2.gif (2466 bytes) O my beloved Christ, crucified by Love, I wish to be a bride for Your Heart; I wish to cover You with Glory; I wish to Love You... even unto death! But I feel my weakness, and I ask You to "clothe me with Yourself", to identify my Soul with all the movements of Your Soul, to overwhelm me, to possess me, to substitute Yourself for me that my life may be but a radiance of Your Life. Come into me as Adorer, as Restorer, as Savior.

vela-c2.gif (2466 bytes) O Eternal Word, Word of my God, I want to spend my life in listening to You, to become wholly teachable that I may learn all from You. Then, through all nights, all voids, all helplessness, I want to gaze on You always and remain in Your great Light. O my beloved Star, so fascinate me that I may not withdraw from Your radiance.

vela-c2.gif (2466 bytes) O consuming Fire, Spirit of Love, "come upon me", and create in my Soul a kind of Incarnation of the Word: that I may be another humanity for Him in which He can renew His whole Mystery. And You, O Father, bend lovingly over Your poor little creature; "cover her with Your shadow", seeing in her only the "Beloved in whom You are well pleased".

vela-c2.gif (2466 bytes) O my Three, my All, my Beatitude, Infinite Solitude, Immensity in which I lose myself, I surrender myself to You as Your prey. Bury Yourself in me that I may bury myself in You until I depart to contemplate in Your Light the abyss of Your greatness.

Amen
