Let not thy heart be troubled, and let it not fear. Believe in Me and trust My mercy. (Imitation fo Christ, Book 3:30)

Having received so many graces, I can cry out with the Psalmist: Give praise to the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever (Ps 117). I cannot help thinking that if everyone were given such graces, no one would fear God, but all would love Him with a boundless love. No longer out of fear, but out of love no soul would deliberately commit the least fault. (St Therese, Story of the Soul)
