Act of Love by the Cure D’Ars

I love You, O my God. My only desire is to love You until the last breath of my life.

I love You, O infinitely loveable God, and I prefer to die loving You, rather than to live for an instant without You.

I love You, O my God, and I desire only to go to heaven, to have the happiness of loving You perfectly.

I love You, O my God, and my only fear is to go to hell, because one will never have the sweet solace of loving You there.

O my God, if my tongue cannot say at all times that I love You, at least I want my heart to repeat it to You as many times as I breathe. Ah! Do me the grace: to suffer while loving You, to love You while suffering, and, that when I die: I not only will love You, but experience it in my heart.

I beg You that: the closer I come to my final end, You will increase and perfect my love for You.
