Prayer of Saint Catherine of Siena "My Nature Is Fire"

In your nature, God I shall come to know my nature. And what is my nature? Boundless love? It is fire. Because you are a Fire of Love. And you have given me a share in this nature, for by the fire of love you created me. Oh how ungrateful I can be!

What nature has God given me? His very own nature! Am I not ashamed to cut myself off from such a noble gift through the guilt of deadly sin? Oh, eternal Trinity, my sweet Love! You, Light, give me light. You, Wisdom, give me wisdom. You, Supreme Strength, strengthen me.

Today, eternal God, let my cloud be dissipated so that I may perfectly know and follow your Truth in truth. God, come to my assistance! Lord, make haste to help me!  Saint Catherine of Siena
