Be comforted

Be comforted

I know quite well all you are suffering. I know your anguish, and I share it. Oh! if I could but impart to you the peace which Jesus has put into my soul amid my most bitter tears. Be comforted – all passes away. -St. Therese of Lisieux

They loved much

They loved much

You love St. Augustine and St. Mary Magdalen, those souls to whom many sins were forgiven because they loved much. I love them too; I love their sorrow, and especially their audacious love. -St. Therese of Lisieux

Love of the Heart

Love of the Heart

Since I also have been given to understand the Love of the Heart of Jesus, I confess that all fear has been driven from mine. -St. Therese of Lisieux

The justice of God

The justice of God

This, then, is what I think about the Justice of God; my own way is all confidence and love, and I cannot understand those souls who are afraid of so affectionate a Friend. -St. Therese of Lisieux

Fills my heart

Fills my heart

The Lord’s will fills my heart to the brim, and if anything else is added it cannot penetrate to any depth, but like oil on the surface of water it glides easily across. -St. Therese of Lisieux

All her good intentions

All her good intentions

How do I react when in my mind’s eye, I see the defects of someone who doesn’t attract me? I remind myself of all that person’s good qualities, all her good intentions. -St. Therese of Lisieux

The only way

The only way

Jesus has shown me the only way that leads to the fire of divine love: it is that of a little child who, full of trust, falls asleep in its father’s arms. -St. Therese of Lisieux
