Deep Calls on Deep

ElisabethOne abyss calls upon another. It is there, my God, at the bottom that I shall meet You: the abyss of my poverty, of my nothingness, will be confronted with the abyss of Your mercy, the immensity of Your All. There I will find strength to die to myself and, losing every trace of self, I shall be changed into love.
Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity (1880–1906)
