St. Thérèse of Lisiuex as a child

St. Therese as a small child.

early years

I know of one means only by which to attain perfection:LOVE. Let us love, since our heart is made for nothing else.  

St. Therese school age.


O my God, Thou knowest I have never desired but to love Thee alone. I seek no other glory. Thy Love has gone before me from my childhood, it has grown with my growth, and now it is an abyss the depths of which I cannot fathom.
