Treasures of the Church-
Act of Love
John Marie Vianney
Cure of Ars
I love You, O my God
and my sole desire is to love You until the last breath of my life.
I love You, O infinitely lovable God and I prefer to die loving You
than live one instant without loving You.
I love You, O my God, and I do not desire anything but heaven so as
to have the joy of loving You perfectly.
I love You, O my God, and I fear hell, because there will not be the
sweet consolation of loving You.
O my God, if my tongue cannot say in every moment that I love You, I
want my heart to say it in every beat. Allow me the grace to suffer
loving You, to love you suffering and one day to die loving You and
feeling that I love You. And as I approach my end, I beg you to
increase and perfect my love of You.
