Prayer 15 from Therese of Lisieux


"Eternal Father, Since You Have Given Me"

"Just as in an earthly kingdom one can procure all one desires with money on which the royal image is stamped, so with the precious coin of my Sacred Humanity, which is my Adorable Face, you will obtain all you desire."

5 (Our Lord to Sister Mary' of St Peter)

Eternal Father, since you have given me for my inher­itance 10 the Adorable Face of your Divine Son, I 15 offer it to you and I ask you, in exchange for this infinitely precious 20 Coin, to forget the ingratitude of souls who are conse­crated to you and to pardon poor sinners.
