Saint Therese knew it was all God. She knew her life was nothing else but the flowering forth of the Divine Mercy. She knew that when she suffered a nervous breakdown early in her life it was God who healed her. She knew that despite her charm and attractive qualities it was God who had preserved her from worldliness and the deceptions of a superficial life. She knew that when she entered into the dark night — and seemingly had lost faith — it was God who carried her through to the Eternal Light.

After the example of St. As members of His family, we get to help bring healing to souls in need by our prayers and penances, repairing damage caused by sin, even through the Mercy is all His. Therese of the Child Jesus did not wish to be a victim holocaust of Diving Justice like so many in her day and age, as honorable as their intentions were.
Therese a most beautiful and astonishing revelation. Therese, flushed with joy on Trinity Sunday, , was inspired by her Beloved to offer herself as a victim to Merciful Love. But Therese knew that so great an invitation, springing from the depths of Infinite Tenderness, was not meant for her alone. She convinced several of the other nuns in her monastery to also make this Act of Oblation. And, she invites us too! But lest anyone feel they are unworthy to make such an offering, please know that you are then the most worthy. I quote Therese: Is the choice of me worthy of Love? Yes, for in order that Love should be fully satisfied, it needs to stoop down, to stoop down to Nothingness and to transform this Nothingness into FIRE.
Blessed Trinity, I desire to Love you and make you Loved, To work for the glory of the Holy Church By saving souls on earth and by liberating those suffering in purgatory. I desire to accomplish your will perfectly And to reach the degree of glory that you have prepared for me in Your Kingdom. You loved me so much that you gave me your only Son To be my Savior and my Spouse. The infinite treasures of his merits are mine. I offer them to you with gladness. Look on me through the Face of Jesus and in his Heart burning with Love. I offer you, too, all the merits of the saints in Heaven and on earth, Their acts of Love, and those of the Holy Angels. The Love and merits of the Blessed Virgin, my cherished Mother.
