“Just as the sun shines at the same time on trees and flowers, like each was the only one on earth, so does our Lord care for all souls in a special manner, as if they were each unique.

“And just like in nature, all seasons are ordered so that the humblest daisy blooms on a fixed day, in the same way everything contributes to the Good of every single soul.

“Holiness is not one exercise or another. It consists in a disposition of the heart, which renders us humble and little in the hands of God, conscious of our weakness but confident, even daringly confident, in God’s goodness.

“Jesus chose to show me the only path that leads to this divine furnace. That path is the abandonment of a Little child who sleeps in his Father’s arms without any fear.

“My little way is the way of spiritual childhood, the way of trust and absolute self-surrender.”

Saint Therese of Lisieux
