"Suscipe me, Domine, secundum eloquium tuum et viviam,
et non confundas me ab expectation mea."
After the profession of Holy Vows, wherein, the Religious is now perpetually professed, she implores Our Lord to receive her in His great mercy chanting: “Receive me, O Lord, according to Thy word, and I shall live:
and let me not be confounded in my hope” (from Psalm 119)
"Remaining little before God ... is to recognize our nothingness,
to expect everything from God, as a little child expects everything from his or her father."
"It is so sweet to call God our Father!"
- St. Therese of Lisieux
"O Sacred Heart of Jesus, fountain of eternal life,
Your Heart is a glowing furnace of Love.
You are my refuge and my sanctuary.
O my adorable and loving Savior,
consume my heart with the burning fire with which Yours is aflamed.
Pour down on my soul those graces which flow from Your love.
Let my heart be united with Yours.
Let my will be conformed to Yours in all things.
May Your Will be the rule of all my desires and actions. Amen."
- St. Gertrude the Great
Blessed are they who imitate Our Lady,
for in imitating her, they imitate Christ.
