St. Elizabeth of the Trinity

Carmelite 1880-1906

"Be holy for I am holy."  It is the Lord who speaks. Whatever may be our way of life or the clothing we wear, each of us must be the holy one of God. Who then is "the most holy"?  The one who is most loving, who gazes longest on God and who most fully satisfies the desires of His gaze. How do we satisfy the desires of God's gaze but by remaining simply and lovingly turned towards Him so that He may reflect His own image as the sun is reflected through pure crystal.
