Quote of the day, 30 November: St. Thérèse of Lisieux

How can I fulfill the desires of my poor little soul?…

Ah! in spite of my littleness, I would like to enlighten souls like the Prophets and the Doctors; I have the vocation to be an Apostle…

I would like to travel all over the world to preach your name and plant your glorious Cross on the soil of the unbelievers; but, oh my Beloved, one mission wouldn’t be enough for me, I would like at the same time to proclaim the Gospel in the five parts of the world and even in the most remote islands…

I would like to be a missionary not only for a few years, but I would like to have been one since the creation of the world and to be one until the end of the ages…

But above all, I would like to shed my blood for you, O my Beloved Savior, down to the last drop…

Saint Thérèse of Child Jesus
