Season of Carmel

From St Therese of Lisieux:

I realize that what pleases God is to see my littleness and my poverty, the blind hope I have in His mercy. That is my sole treasure.. why should not this treasure be yours? Understand that to love Jesus, to be His victim of love, the weaker one is, without desires or virtues, the more apt one is for the operations of that consuming and transforming love. Ah, let us love our littleness, love to feel nothing, then we shall be poor in spirit, and Jesus will come for us. He will transform us in love’s flames… it is trust, and nothing but trust, that must bring us to Love… Fear brings us only to justice.
