The Autobiography of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux, a Carmelite sister, entitled by herself:
“The Story of the Spring time of a Little White Flower”: Earliest Memories
It is to you, dear Mother, that I am about to confide the story of my soul. When you asked me to write it, I feared the task might unsettle me, but since then Our Lord has deigned to make me understand that by simple obedience I shall please Him best. I begin therefore to sing what must be my eternal song: The Mercies of the Lord. (Psalms 89:1). I understood that God’s Love is made manifest as well in a simple soul which does not resist His grace as in one more highly endowed. In fact, the characteristic of love being self-abasement, if all souls resembled the holy Doctors who have illuminated the Church, it seems that God in coming to them would not stoop low enough, but He has created the little child who knows nothing and can but utter feeble cries and the poor savage who has only the natural law to guide him. It is to their hearts that He deigns to stoop.
These are the field flowers whose simplicity charms Him; and by His condescension to them, Our Savior shows His infinite greatness. As the sun shines both on the cedar and on the floweret, so the Divine Sun illumines every soul, great and small and all correspond to His care—just as in nature the seasons are so disposed that on the appointed day the humblest daisy shall unfold its petals.
