Quote of the day: 25 September

Mother Agnès of Jesus

They said to her: Ah, it’s awful what you’re suffering!

Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus

No, it’s not awful. A little victim of love can’t think that what her Spouse sends her out of love is awful.

  1. I believe St Therese also said, “I always get what I want, for I want whatever He sends”? Cannot give you reference. Really saintly attitude – of course.
