    But coming closer we find, on the contrary, that to do good without God's help is as impossible as to make the sun shine at night. Therese knew from her life that God is merciful love; many scripture passages in the Old and New Testaments bore out that truth. After the Mass of thanksgiving, the chaplain gave a short discourse, the theme of which was always gratitude and perseverance. Four years later, when Marie joined her sister at the Carmel, Therese's desire for a life in religion was intensified. If the holy priests, 'the salt of the earth', as Jesus calls them in the Gospel, have to be prayed for, what about the lukewarm? Reverony did not give me time.

    She excelled in it and set up her own business on Rue Saint-Blaise at age Some things lose their fragrance when opened to the air, and there are stirrings of the soul which cannot be put into words without destroying their delicacy. In a basilica in her honor at Lisieux was opened and blessed by Cardinal Pacelli; and it was he who, inas Pope, declared her the secondary patroness of France. Therese based her "little way" on two fundamental convictions: 1. The nine and a half years she spent among us leave our souls fragrant with the most beautiful virtues with which the life of a Carmelite can be filled.

    We are going to have them left on our hands. To know Therese is to understand that she is one of us. She was said to be a stubborn child and impatient, yet also reflective. This liberty frightened her; she felt herself to be so weak and frail that she wanted to be united for ever to Divine Strength.

Afterwards he received the children and their friends, who thanked him for the devoted care with which he had prepared their young souls for the first visit of Our Lord.

In the chapel and in the refectory the retreatants are by themselves. I am certain that if by some impossible chance You could find a soul more feeble, more insignificant than mine, You would overwhelm it with graces still more extraordinary, provided it would give itself up in entire confidence to Your infinite mercy.

With all the intensity of her ardent nature she loved the daily round of religious practices, the liturgical prayers, the reading of Scripture. Turn thee with thy whole heart unto the Lord; and forsake this wretched world: and thy soul shall find rest.

Thereses style. Dispensations are not meant for her. Therese once wrote that she could not understand how anyone could be afraid of a God who became a child. After entering the Carmel she began to sign letters to her father and others, "Therese of the Child Jesus.

She discovered the joy in self-forgetfulness and added, "I felt, in a word, charity enter my heart, the need to forget myself to make others happy—Since this blessed night I was not defeated in any battle, but instead I went from victory to victory and began, so to speak, "to run a giant's course".

She wrote: "One would have to pass through this martyrdom to understand it well, and for me to express what I experienced for a year and a half would be impossible". On the contrary, I made such efforts to welcome the shower of dirty water, that at the end of half an hour I had taken quite a fancy to this novel kind of aspersion, and I resolved to come as often as I could to the happy spot where such treasures were freely bestowed.

At the end of August, the newspapers reported that just as Pranzini's neck was placed on the guillotine, he had grabbed a crucifix and kissed it three times. Had she lived, she would have been only 52 years old when she was declared a Saint. Tome reading did not impress my teacher.
