Act of Love
I love You, O my infinitely lovable God, and I would rather die loving You than live a single instant without loving You.
I love You, O my God, and I desire heaven only to have the happiness of loving You perfectly.
I love You, O my God, and I fear hell only because there will not be the sweet consolation of loving You.
O my God, if my tongue cannot say at every moment that I love You, at least I want my heart to repeat it to You as many times as I breathe.
Oh, give me the grace to suffer while loving You, to love You while suffering, and to die one day while loving You and feeling that I love You.
And the closer I come to my end, the more I beseech You to increase my love and to perfect it.
