The Autobiography of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux (The Little Flower), a Carmelite sister.

To get to heaven I need not grow; on the contrary, I must remain little, I must become still less. O my God, Thou hast gone beyond my expectation, and I . . . “I will sing Thy mercies! Thou hast taught me, O Lord, from my youth and until now I have declared Thy wonderful works and thus unto old age and gray hairs.” (Psalms 71:16-18).

Please Jesus is what I really value and desire above all things. 

I prefer to own in all simplicity that “He that is mighty has done great things for me.” (Lk 1:49)—and the greatest is that He has shown me my littleness and how incapable I am of anything good. My soul has known trials of many kinds. I have suffered much on this earth. In my childhood I suffered with sadness, but now I find sweetness in all things. 

During Lent last year, I felt much better than ever and continued so until Holy Week, in spite of the fast that I observed in all its rigor, but in the early hours of Good Friday, Jesus gave me hope that I should soon join Him in His beautiful home. How sweet is this memory!

I could not obtain permission to remain watching at the Altar of Repose throughout the Thursday night and I returned to our cell at midnight. Scarcely was my head laid on the pillow when I felt a hot stream rise to my lips. I thought I was going to die and my heart nearly broke with joy. At five o’clock, when it was time to get up, I found, as I had expected, that our handkerchief was soaked with blood.
