Quote of the day: 29 October

Little Thérèse asked me the other day if she would go to Heaven? I told her that yes, if she was a good girl; she answered:

“Yes, but if I wasn’t cute I would go to hell… but I know what I would do, I’d fly away with you to Heaven, how would the good Lord be able to take me away?… You would hold me tight in your arms.”

I saw in her eyes that she positively believed that the good Lord couldn’t do anything to her if she was in her mother’s arms….
