The Autobiography of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux (The Little Flower); a Carmelite sister.
One day during prayer, it was brought home to me that my too-eager desire to take my vows was mingled with much self-love; as I belonged to Our Lord and was His little plaything to console and please Him, it was for me to do His Will, not for Him to do mine. I also understood that a bride would not be pleasing to the bridegroom on her wedding day were she not magnificently attired, but what had I made ready?
I said to Our Lord “I do not ask Thee to hasten the day of my profession. I will wait as long as Thou pleasest, only I cannot bear that through any fault of mine my union with Thee should be delayed. I will set to work and carefully prepare a wedding-dress enriched with diamonds and precious stones and, when Thou findest it sufficiently rich, I am sure that nothing will keep Thee from accepting me as Thy Spouse.”
I took up the task with renewed zest. Since my clothing day, I had received abundant lights on religious perfection, chiefly concerning the vow of poverty. Jesus bore with me patiently, for He does not unfold everything at once to the soul. He gives His light little by little.
At the beginning of my spiritual life, at about the age of fourteen, I used to ask myself how, in days to come, I should more clearly understand the true meaning of perfection. I imagined I then understood it completely, but I soon came to realize that the more one advances along this path the farther one seems from the goal and now I am resigned to be always imperfect and I even find joy therein.
