⛪ Therese of Lisieux Quotes About Angels


Therese of Lisieux Quotes About Angels

Let us not be justices of the peace, but angels of peace.
Therese of Lisieux

At the time of Holy Communion I sometimes picture my soul under the figure of a little child of three or four years, who at play has got its hair tossed and its clothes soiled. These misfortunes have befallen me in battling with souls. But very soon the Blessed Virgin hastens to my aid: quickly, she takes off my dirty little pinafore, smoothes my hair and adorns it with a pretty ribbon or simply with a little flower... and this suffices to render me pleasing and enables me to sit at the Banquet of Angels without blushing.
Therese of Lisieux

You must open a little, or rather raise on high your corolla so that the Bread of Angels may come as divine dew to strengthen you, and to give you all that is wanting to you.
Therese of Lisieux

Whose hands are God's hands, but our hands?
Therese of Lisieux


Therese of Lisieux Quotes About Books

Jesus needs neither books nor Doctors of Divinity in order to instruct souls; He, the Doctor of Doctors, He teaches without noise of words.
Therese of Lisieux

I had wondered for a long time why God had preferences and why all souls did not receive an equal amount of grace [...] Jesus saw fit to enlighten me about this mystery. He set the book of nature before me and I saw that all the flowers He has created are lovely. The splendor of the rose and whiteness of the lily do not rob the little violet of its scent nor the daisy of its simple charm. I realized that if every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its loveliness and there would be no wild flowers to make the meadows gay.
Therese of Lisieux

Apart from the Office [the daily prayer of the Church] which is a daily joy, I do not have the courage to search through books for beautiful prayers. ... Unable either to say them all or to choose between them, I do as a child would who cannot read - I just say what I want to say to God, quite simply, and he never fails to understand.
Therese of Lisieux

(Whispered to a novice while standing in front of the convent library) Oh! I would have been sorry to have read all those books...If I had read them, I would have broken my head, and I would have wasted precious time that I could have employed very simply in loving God.
Therese of Lisieux


Therese of Lisieux Quotes About Catholicism

You cannot be half a saint; you must be a whole saint or no saint at all.
Therese of Lisieux

Let us go forward in peace, our eyes upon heaven, the only one goal of our labors.
Therese of Lisieux

No harm can come to me since, in whatever happens, I see only the tender hand of Jesus.
Therese of Lisieux

Frequently, only silence can express my prayer.
Therese of Lisieux


Therese of Lisieux Quotes About Charity

By our little acts of charity practiced in the shade we convert souls far away, we help missionaries, we win for them abundant alms; and by that means build actual dwellings spiritual and material for our Eucharistic Lord.
Therese of Lisieux

True charity consists in putting up with all one's neighbors fault's; never being surprised by his weakness, and being inspired by the least of his virtues.
Therese of Lisieux

I know now that true charity consists in bearing all our neighbors'defects--not being surprised at their weakness, but edified at their smallest virtues.
Therese of Lisieux

When Charity is deeply rooted in the soul it shows itself exteriorly: there is so gracious a way of refusing what we cannot give, that the refusal pleases as much as the gift.
Therese of Lisieux


Therese of Lisieux Quotes About Children

At the time of Holy Communion I sometimes picture my soul under the figure of a little child of three or four years, who at play has got its hair tossed and its clothes soiled.

Do not fear to tell Jesus that you love Him even without feeling it. That is the way to force Jesus to help you, to carry you like a little child too feeble to walk.
Therese of Lisieux

At last there dawned the most beautiful day of all the days of my life. How perfectly I remember even the smallest details of those sacred hours! The joyful awakening, the reverent and tender embraces of my mistresses and older companions, the room filled with white frocks, like so many snowflakes, where each child was dressed in turn.
Therese of Lisieux


Therese of Lisieux Quotes About Communion

The guest of our soul knows our misery; He comes to find an empty tent within us - that is all He asks.

Receive Communion often, very often...there you have the sole remedy, if you want to be cured. Jesus has not put this attraction in your heart for nothing.
Therese of Lisieux

In that first 'fusion' with Jesus (holy communion), it was my Heavenly Mother again who accompanied me to the altar for it was she herself who placed her Jesus into my soul.
Therese of Lisieux
  
Do you realize that Jesus is there in the tabernacle expressly for you- for you alone? He burns with the desire to come into your heart... don't listen to the demon, laugh at him, and go without fear to receive the Jesus of peace and love.
Therese of Lisieux

I am convinced that one should tell one's spiritual director if one has a great desire for Communion, for Our Lord does not come from Heaven every day to stay in a golden ciborium; He comes to find another heaven, the heaven of our soul in which He loves to dwell.
Therese of Lisieux

Go often to Holy Communion. Go very often! This is your one remedy.
Therese of Lisieux

God has made me desire always what he most wants to give me.
Therese of Lisieux

O Jesus! on this day, you have fulfilled all my desires. From now on, near the Eucharist, I shall be able To sacrifice myself in silence, to wait for Heaven in peace. Keeping myself open to the rays of the Divine Host, In this furnace of love, I shall be consumed, And like a seraphim, Lord, I shall love You.

Therese of Lisieux Quotes About Difficulty

In trial or difficulty I have recourse to Mother Mary, whose glance alone is enough to dissipate every fear.
Therese of Lisieux

Everything is a grace, everything is the direct effect of our Father's love - difficulties, contradictions, humiliations, all the soul's miseries, her burdens, her needs - everything, because through them, she learns humility, realizes her weakness. Everything is a grace because everything is God's gift. Whatever be the character of life or its unexpected events - to the heart that loves, all is well.
Therese of Lisieux

Therese of Lisieux Quotes About Earth

When I die, I will send down a shower of roses from the heavens,I will spend my heaven by doing good on earth.
Therese of Lisieux

I will spend my heaven doing good on earth.
Therese of Lisieux

Trials help us detach ourselves from the earth; they make us look higher than this world.
Therese of Lisieux

Remember that in ascending to the Father You could not leave us orphans; And in making yourself a prisoner on earth You knew to veil all your divine rays. But the shadow of your veil is luminous and pure. Living Bread of faith, Celestial Food, O mystery of love! My daily Bread, Jesus, is You!... Jesus, it is you who, despite the blasphemies Of the enemies of the Sacrament of love, It is you who want to show how much you love me, Since you make your dwelling in my heart. O Bread of the exiled! Holy and Divine Host, It is no longer I who live, but I live on your life
Therese of Lisieux

In Heaven the good God will do all I wish, because I have never done my own will upon earth.
Therese of Lisieux
