Quote of the day, 10 June: St. Thérèse of Lisieux

O My God! Most Blessed Trinity, I desire to love you and make you loved, to work for the glory of Holy Church by saving souls on earth and liberating those suffering in purgatory. I desire to accomplish Your will perfectly and to reach the degree of glory You have prepared for me in Your Kingdom.

I desire, in a word, to be a Saint, but I feel my helplessness and I beg You, O my God! to be Yourself my Sanctity! #StThérèseofLisieux

Saint Thérèse of Lisieux

Prayer 6: Offering of myself as a Victim of Holocaust to God’s Merciful Love (excerpt)

On 10 June 1914, only nineteen years after the composition of this great prayer, Pope Saint Pius X signed the decree introducing the cause for the beatification and canonization of Thérèse of the Child Jesus that was submitted by the Diocese of Bayeux and Lisieux.
