Love of the Crucified

Elizabeth's Profession Crucifix

"A Carmelite is a soul who has gazed on the Crucified One; who has seen Him offering Himself as a Victim to His Father for souls and, recollecting herself in this great vision of the charity of Christ, has understood the passionate love of His soul, and has wanted to give herself as he did! On the mountain of Carmel in silence, in solitude, in a prayer that never ends- for it continues through everything - the Carmelite already lives "with God alone" as in Heaven. So she hungers for silence that she may always listen, always penetrate further His infinite Being. She is identified with Him whom she loves. She finds Him everywhere; through everything she sees His radiance! Is this not Heaven on earth!"

Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity
