Therese of Lisieux for August, 2018

When faced by our limitations, we must have recourse to the practice of offering to God the good works of others.
-St. Therese of Lisieux


Remember that this sweet Jesus is there in the Tabernacle expressly for you and you alone. Remember that He burns with the desire to enter your heart. Do not listen to satan. Laugh him to scorn, and go without fear to receive Jesus.
-St. Therese of Lisieux


Your lot is indeed a beautiful one, since Our Lord has chosen it for you, and has first touched with His own Lips the cup which He holds out to yours.
-St. Therese of Lisieux


How short-sighted His creatures can be! They find a soul whose lights surpass their own; they think the Lord loves them less. Yet when did He lose the right to use one of his children to provide others with the nourishment they need?
