The Autobiography of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux (The Little Flower), a Carmelite sister.
I know I shall never recover from this sickness and yet I am at peace. For years I have not belonged to myself. I have surrendered myself wholly to Jesus and He is free to do with me whatsoever He pleases.
Among the numberless graces that I have received this year, not the least is an understanding of how far-reaching is the precept of charity. I had never before fathomed these words of Our Lord:
“The second commandment is like to the first: Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.” (Mt 22:39).
I had set myself above all to love God, and it was in loving Him that I discovered the hidden meaning of these other words:
“It is not those who say, ‘Lord! Lord! Who enter into the Kingdom of Heaven, but he who does the Will of My Father.” (Mt 7:21).
Jesus revealed to me this Will when at the Last Supper He gave His New Commandment in telling His Apostles to love one another as He had loved them. I set myself to find out how He had loved His Apostles; I saw that it was not for their natural qualities, for they were ignorant men, full of earthly ideas and yet He calls them His Friends, His Brethren. He desires to see them near Him in the Kingdom of His Father and in order to admit them to this Kingdom, He wills to die on the Cross, saying:
“Greater love than this no man hath, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” (Cf. Jn 13:34)
