The Autobiography of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux (The Little Flower) – a Carmelite sister.
I shall always remember my First Communion Day. How sweet was the first embrace of Jesus! It was indeed an embrace of love. I felt that I was loved and I said “I love Thee and I give myself to Thee forever.”
Jesus asked nothing of me and claimed no sacrifice. For a long time He and little Thérèse had known and understood one another. That day our meeting was more than simple recognition; it was perfect union. We were no longer two. Thérèse had disappeared like a drop of water lost in the immensity of the ocean. Jesus alone remained – He was the Master, the King! Then my joy became so intense, so deep, that it could not be restrained; tears of happiness welled up and overflowed. My companions were astonished and no-one understood that all the joy of Heaven had come down into one heart and that this heart, exiled, weak and mortal as it was, could not contain it without tears.
During the afternoon I read the act of consecration to Our Lady, for myself and my companions. I was chosen probably because I had been deprived of my earthly Mother while still so young. With all my heart I consecrated myself to the Blessed Virgin Mary and asked her to watch over me. She seemed to look lovingly on her Little Flower and to smile at her again and I thought of the visible smile which had once cured me and of all I owed her.
