Conversion of St Paul



Let Thy name be praised, not mine, let Thy work be extolled, not mine; let Thy holy name be blessed; but to me let nothing be attributed of the praises of men. Thou art my glory; Thou art the joy of my heart. In Thee will I glory and rejoice all the day;(Imitation bk3 ch9) but for myself I will glory in nothing but in my infirmities (2Cor 12:5)

Someone had said to her: "You are a Saint!" "No, I am not a saint, not have my deeds ever been those of a saint. I am a very little soul whom God has overwhelmed with graces. In Heaven you will see that I am speaking the truth". St Therese 'Novissima Verba'
