God gave Elizabeth Kindelmann a Signal Grace for all humanity (www.flameoflove.us), but in His Infinite Love and Mercy, he gave a similar (though different) Grace to St. Therese of Lisieux. We can hear St. Therese in her own words describe her Joy: “Jesus will come for us, far off as we are…and transform us into a flame of love…O My Jesus! That I might be that happy victim, consume your holocaust through the fire of your Divine Love…it was as if an invisible hand had plunged me entirely into the fire. Oh! What fire and what sweetness at the same time! I was on fire with love, and I thought that one moment, one second more, I would not have been able to bear it without dying….This is my prayer: I beg Jesus to draw me into the Flames of His Love; to unit me so closely that He may live and act in me.”
From various works of St. Therese
