Wednesday of Holy Week

Nicolas Poussin, Last Supper

My time is near...The Son of Man goes as it is written of Him (St Matthew 26:18-24)

After having prepared me to appear before You, if only this martyr could make me finally die so that my soul could leap into the eternal embrace of your merciful love. My Beloved, with each heartbeat, I want to infinitely renew this offering, until such a time when shadows fade and I will be able to tell you again of my love, face to face, eternally! (St Therese, Prayer 6)

after 'Through the Year with St Therese'
