"O, God, hidden in the prison of the tabernacle! I come with joy to you each evening to thank you for the graces you have given me. I ask pardon for the faults I committed today, which has just slipped away … O, Jesus! How ahppy I would be if I had been faithful, but often in the evening I am sad because I feel I could have corresponded better with your graces … And yet, my God, far from becoming discouraged at the sight of my miseries, I come to you with confidence, recalling that 'those who are well do not need a doctor, but the sick do.' I beg you, then, to cure me and to pardon me. I will keep in mind, Lord, 'that the soul to whom you have forgiven more should also love you more than the others.'"
O Lord, You have said: Unless you become as little children you shall not enter the kingdom of heaven; grant us, we beg You, so to follow, in humility and simplicity of heart, the footsteps of the Virgin blessed Thérèse, that we may attain to an everlasting reward. Amen.
