Quote of the day, 3 October: St. Thérèse of Lisieux

Remember the heavenly affection
You heaped on the littlest children.
I too want to receive your caresses.
Ah! give me your ravishing kisses.
To enjoy your sweet presence in Heaven,
I’ll practice the virtues of childhood.
Didn’t you often say:
“Heaven is for children…”?

Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus

PN 24, Jésus, mon Bien-Aimé, rappelle-toi !
