"And thou, Father bend down towards Thy poor little creature and overshadow her, beholding in her none other than Thy Beloved Son in whom Thou art well pleased." Bl Elizabeth of the Trinity
This is a constant refrain in Blessed Elizabeth's sentiments and consequently her writings. The idea that by baptism we were consecrated to God and that the life of the Trinity was infused into our souls and we became the Indwelling of the Trinity. As a consequence, we share in the life of Jesus- a life marked by His Passion, Death and Resurrection. She identifies with St. Paul's sentiments of predestination according to the life and destiny of Jesus, the "first of many brothers."
"We have been predestined by the decree of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, so that we may be the praise of His glory." " It is St. Paul who tells us this", exclaims Elizabeth.
