'"True happiness on earth consists in being forgotten and in remaining completely ignorant of created things." St. Therese of Lisieux, The Story of a Soul

"He alone is unchangeable and that He alone can satisfy the multitude of my desires." St. Therese of Lisieux, The Story of a Soul

"The closer we come to God, the more simple we become." The Story of a Soul, one of the older Mothers of St. Therese of Lisieux.

The simple truths in her words never cease to inspire me, because they are always so true.

St. Therese, Ora Pro Nobis!

Splendid quotes!

That first one especially is a very helpful quote, thanks be to God for it, and for the messengers delivering it. Cheesy

And the third one..

The first one I am enjoying thinking about how touches on holy modesty and humility.

True wisdom comes with true simplicity...I pray that I may be so simple and trusting. It is truly a challenge in our complicated world.

When she entered the convent in Lisieux, Therese took the religious name Sister Therese of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face.
