St. Therese Speaks to Us - Self Abandonment

"My heart is entirely filled with the will of Jesus; therefore when anything over and above falls to its share, this does not penetrate to its depths; it is a mere nothing which easily glides by, as oil on the surface of limpid water. Ah! if my heart were not filled up beforehand, had it to be filled by the sentiments of joy or of sadness which so quickly succeed each other, bitter indeed would be this flood tide of pain, but these rapid alternations do no more than ruffle the surface of my soul, and I remain ever in a profound peace that nothing can disturb." Excepted from Story of A Soul

Oh little St. Therese, instill in our hearts a love of your little way. Help us to always seek to lose ourselves in your merciful heart.
