The Filial Confidence of St. Therese

 St. Therese wrote to one of the missionary priests one day that, “Since it has been given to me too, to understand the love of the Heart of Jesus, I own that it has chased all fear from mine! The remembrance of my faults humiliates me, and urges me never to depend upon my own strength which is nothing but weakness: still more does this remembrance speak to me of mercy and of love. When, with all filial confidence we cast our faults into the devouring furnace of love, how should they not be totally cosumed?” (V Letter To Her Missionary “Brothers”)
