I am certain that even if I had on my conscience every imaginable crime,
I should lose nothing of my confidence; rather I would hurry,
with a heart broken with sorrow,
to throw myself into the Arms of my Jesus.
St. Therese of Lisieux
“St. Therese makes clear that love for God centers on developing a personal, loving relationship to Jesus. Love for God is a manifestation of our faith in God who has first loved us. Daily she was mindful of Him and sought to live out the gospel. That is how a relationship happens…being attentive, remembering reaching out in faith, accepting God’s love as personal, walking each day in the presence of Jesus!” – taken from The Path to Spiritual Maturity, by Fr. John F. Russell, O. Carm.
