Strong Love, Wise Love, Sweet Love

Laudo te, o amor fortissime;
benedico te, o amor sapientissime;
glorifico te, o amor dulcissime;
magnifico te, o amor benignissime;
in omnibus et pro omnibus bonis quae tua gloriosissima divinitas et beatissima humanitas operata est in nobis per nobilissimum instrumentum Cordis tui; et operabitur in saecula saeculorum. Amen.

I praise you, O strongest love;
I bless you, O wisest love;
I glorify you, O sweetest love;
I magnify you, O kindest love;
in all and for all the good things which your most glorious divinity and your most blessed humanity have worked in us by the most noble instrument of your Heart; and will work for ever and ever. Amen.

Mechthild of Hackeborn, Book of Special Grace
(Prayer recommended by Jesus to her to be said during the post-communion prayer at mass).
