Spiritual Gems-The Doctor of Love- March 23, 2013

The Doctor of Love

Last week, we heard from one of the four women who are Doctors of the Church (yes, you are up on Church issues if you know who the fourth one is).  This week we hear from Saint Therese of Lisieux .  She was declared a “Doctor of Love” in the Church,  and to the best of our knowledge, no other Doctor of the Church has this title.

“My virtues are nothing.  They are NOT what give me the unlimited confidence that I feel in my heart.  They are to tell the truth the spiritual riches that render one unjust ,  when one rests in them with complacence and one believes they are something great….Ah!  I really feel that it is not this at all that pleases God in my little soul:; what pleases Him is that He sees me loving my littleness and poverty,  the blind hope that I have in his mercy….that is my only treasure….why would this treasure not be yours?....It is confidence and nothing but confidence that must lead us to Love.”

You can receive complimentary materials to make your Consecration to God through Mary’s Immaculate Heart (important spiritual protection at this time in salvation history) at where you can also learn about Our Lady of Las Lajas.
