Quote/s of the Day – 3 October – St Thérèse of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face (1873 – 1897)
“Whoever does not accept
the kingdom of God
like a little child,
shall not enter it.”
“A word or a smile,
is often enough,
to put fresh life
into a despondent soul.”
“Prayer is an aspiration of the heart.
It is a simple glance directed to Heaven.
It is a cry of gratitude and love
in the midst of trial as well as joy.”
“It is true, I suffer a great deal–
but do I suffer well?
That is the question?!”
“It is not Death that will come to fetch me,
it is the good God.
Death is no phantom, no horrible specter,
as presented in pictures.
In the catechism it is stated,
that death is the separation of soul and body, that is all!
Well, I am not afraid of a separation
which will unite me to the good God forever.”
“If I did not simply live
from one moment to another,
it would be impossible for me to be patient
but I only look at the present,
I forget the past
and I take good care
not to attempt to foretell the future.”
