St. Therese Speaks to Us - Confidence
"Truly I am far from being a saint. I ought not to rejoice at the aridity of my soul but attribute it to the scantiness of my fervour and fidelity. I ought to grieve because I fall asleep very often during my prayer and my thanksgiving. Well, I do not grieve! I reflect that little children when they sleep are as pleasing to their parents as when they are awake; that in order to perform operations, doctors put their patients to sleep; in fine, that the Lord knoweth our frame, He remembereth that we are but dust." Excerpted from Story of A Soul.
Oh little St. Therese, instill in our hearts a love of your little way. Help us to remember our nothingness and to ever ask for your help in accepting our humanness.
