“I long to console You for the ingratitude of the wicked, and I pray You take from me the power to displease You. If, through frailty, sometimes I fall, may Your divine glance purify my soul immediately, consuming every imperfection—as fire transforms all things into itself.”




-St. Thérèse of Lisieux, Little Cathechism of St. Thérèse of Lisieux
