St. Therese of Lisieux: Be Comforted, Little One!

"Be comforted, little one! In Heaven everything will no longer look black, but dazzling white."

- St. Therese of Lisieux

I really needed this quotation from St. Therese yesterday. God is so greatly, generously full of Provident goodness in giving me just the exact words to encourage me, just at the right time. Never, ever, ever give into despair, dear ones! Pain is never permanent, despair is NOT the answer. God is so very, very, very True, Good, Faithful, Beautiful, and Loving... and He is on YOUR side! 

I continue to pray for everyone who stops by the blog, and am so sorry that I'm not able to post more often (it's been rougher than usual healthwise since Holy Week). Please do know that you - each precious, dear, irreplaceable, unrepeatable one of you - are in my daily prayers. Headed to Holy Hour now and I will pray especially for you. Jesus loves you tenderly and personally. He understands. He knows the crosses, anxieties, and emotional wounds which are binding you, and in due time, He will act with speed. In fact, He has already set the wheels in motion to rescue you and bring you the freedom from wounds and discouragement. It takes time, little ones. St. Francis de Sales (Doctor of the Catholic Church) always said that gradual healings are the best.

Shalom. Peace, Truth, Life, and Resurrection Joy to you! I don't know you, but I love you and hold you close to heart in prayer.

Love in Jesus, Mary, and Joseph,

- Christine
