Catholic Prayer: Prayer of Love by Saint Francis de Sales

Description:

This beautiful prayer from Treatise on the Love of God by St. Francis de Sales is a prayer of love, asking our hearts to be on fire, to burn for desire only for love of God.

Prayer:

O love eternal, my soul needs and chooses you eternally! Ah, come Holy Spirit, and inflame our hearts with your love! To love -- or to die! To die -- and to love! To die to all other love in order to live in Jesus' love, so that we may not die eternally. But that we may live in your eternal love, O Savior of our souls, we eternally sing, "Live, Jesus! Jesus, I love! Live, Jesus, whom I love! Jesus, I love, Jesus who lives and reigns forever and ever." Amen.

--from Treatise on the Love of God by Saint Francis de Sales
