St Therese's week

St Therese tells us today of her total trust and love for God, nothing can disturb her gazing upon the Lord.

With bold surrender, I wish to remain gazing upon You, O Lord, my divine Sun.
Nothing will frigthen me, neither wind nor rain, and if dark clouds come and hide You from my gaze, I will not change my place because I know that beyond the clouds You still shine on and Your brightness is not eclipsed for a single instant. Even if You remain deaf to the sorrowing of Your creature, even if You remain hidden, I accept being numb with cold and rejoice in this suffering. My heart is at peace and continues its work of love.
