‘On a similar occasion she told me, “It fills me with joy to have been imperfect; today God has granted me great graces; it has been a profitable day indeed…”
‘When I asked how anyone could entertain such noble sentiments, she answered, “My little method consists in this–rejoicing always and continually smiling–in times of defeat as well as victory.”‘
-from My Sister, Saint Thérèse, by Sister Geneviève of the Holy Face (Celine Martin)
Happy Feast Day!
