Act of Charity

O Lord God, I love you above all things
and I love my neighbor for your sake
because you are the highest, infinite and perfect good,
worthy of all my love.
In this love I intend to live and die. Amen.


Actus Caritatis

Dómine Deus, amo te super ómnia
et próximum meum propter te,
quia tu es summum, infinítum, et perfectíssimum bonum,
omni dilectióne dignum.
In hac caritáte vívere et mori státuo. Amen.
