O consuming Fire, Spirit of Love,
descend within me
and reproduce in me, as it were,
an incarnation of the Word,
that I may be to Him
another humanity
wherein He renews His mystery.

Elizabeth of the Trinity, 1880 – 1906,  French Discalced Carmelite nun and mystic

Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him
