Quote of the day: 26 September

Mother Agnès of Jesus

She had no strength left.

Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus

Oh! I feel crushed!….

Mother Agnès of Jesus

Looking out the window at a dead leaf detached from the tree and hanging in the air by a fine thread:

Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus

See, that’s an image of me, my life is hanging on by a tiny thread.

Mother Agnès of Jesus

After her death, on the evening of September 30, the leaf that until then was swinging in the wind, fell to the ground; I collected it with the spider’s thread that was still attached to it.
