The Autobiography of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux (The Little Flower), a Carmelite sister.
It has never been my desire to become a Saint, but I have always felt, in comparing myself with the Saints, that I am as far removed from them as the grain of sand which the passer-by tramples underfoot and is remote from the mountain whose summit is lost in the clouds.
Instead of being discouraged, I concluded that God would not inspire desires which could not be realized and that I may aspire to sanctity in spite of my littleness. For me to become great is impossible. I must bear with myself and my many imperfections; but I will seek out a means of getting to Heaven by a little way—very short and very straight, a little way that is wholly new.
Well, I mean to try and find a lift by which I may be raised unto God, for I am too tiny to climb the steep stairway of perfection.
I have sought to find in Holy Scripture some suggestion as to what this lift might be, which I so much desired and I read these words uttered by the Eternal Wisdom Itself:
“Whosoever is a little one, let him come to Me.” (Proverbs 9:4).
Then I drew near to God, feeling sure that I had discovered what I sought; but wishing to know further what He would do to the little one, I continued my search and this is what I found:
“You shall be carried at the breasts and upon the knees; as one whom the mother caresses, so will I comfort you.” (Isaiah 66:12-13).
Never have I been consoled by words more tender and sweet. Thine Arms, then, O Jesus, are the lift which must raise me up even unto Heaven.
