Meditation From St. Therese For First Saturday of the BVM

The Ascension of Jesus Into Heaven 

"My desires of martyrdom are nothing; they are not what gives me the unlimited confidence that I feel in my heart...Ah!  I really find that it is not this at all that pleases God in my soul;  what pleases Him is that He sees me loving my littleness and my poverty; the blind hope that I have in His mercy.

Oh dear Sister, I beg you, understand your little girl, understand that to love Jesus, to be His victim of love, the weaker one is without desires or virtues, the more suited one is for the workings of this consuming and transforming Love... it is confidence, and nothing but confidence, that must lead us to Love."

- General Correspondence, Vol. II pp 999-1000, Letter to her sister, Sister Marie of the Sacred Heart, Sept. 1986

Comments which reflect true Christian charity are always welcome. Comments which attack the Pope, the Church, priests or other bloggers will go in the dustbin, especially if they are anonymous. Thank you and God Bless you!
