Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face

Act of Oblation to Merciful Love

“I do not want to lay up merits for heaven.  I want to work for Your Love alone with the one purpose of pleasing You, consoling Your Sacred Heart, and saving souls who will love You eternally.

In the evening of this life, I shall appear before You with empty hands, for I do not ask You, Lord, to count my works.  All our justice is stained in Your eyes.  I wish, then, to be clothed in Your own Justice and to receive from Your Love the eternal possession of Yourself.  I want no other Throne, no other Crown but You, my Beloved!”
