Commemoration of Thérèse of Lisieux, Carmelite Nun, Spiritual Writer, 1897
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
—1 Corinthians 13:4 (NIV)
To live of love, ’tis without stint to give,
And never count the cost, nor ask reward;
So, counting not the cost, I long to live
And show my dauntless love for Thee, dear Lord!
O Heart Divine, o’erflowing with tenderness,
How swift I run, who all to Thee has given!
Naught but Thy love I need, my life to bless.
That love is heaven!
... Thérèse of Lisieux (1873-1897), Poems of St. Teresa, Carmelite of Lisieux, Boston, Angel Guardian Press, 1907, “To Live of Love”, n. 5 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
Grant, Lord, that I should learn to love You more.
