Catholic Quote of the Day — from St. Thérèse of Lisieux

St. Thérèse of Lisieux


St. Thérèse of the Child Jesus, Virgin and Doctor of the Church

(from Abandonment is the Sweet Fruit of Love, 1897)

In peace, Sweet Jesus,
I want to wait for your return,
Without ever ceasing
My canticles of love.

No, nothing worries me.
Nothing can trouble me.
My soul knows how to fly
Higher than the lark.

Above the clouds
The sky is always blue.
One touches the shores
Where God reigns.

I await on peace the glory
Of that Heavenly abode,
For I find in the Ciborium
The sweet Fruit of Love!


The Memorial of St. Thérèse of the Child Jesus, Virgin and Doctor of the Church (1873 – 1897) is October 1.
