“I am Saint Therese of Lisieux.
During the period of time when so many young women, young men, chose vocations they felt would give to them a higher goal in life, the vocations were to serve in the religious life.
Today as I speak, this desire is almost beyond what mankind would call ‘obsolete’, because mankind has, in so many ways, become accustomed to all things that are based on humanistic values, ideals, using in many ways, materialistic values as the basis for practice in vocations, plus practice in moral values.
The world is the same as it was thousands of years ago. By This Statement, I mean the structure that holds human life, and the lives of many other types of living matter or things. The change in human understanding of the Importance of human life has been totally classed in what could be, and is called, ‘a commercial form of thinking, acting, goals’.
‘Upon awakening on this day, was my first thought to pray, asking The Father to bless the day, or was it what I was to do according to how I live, what I am bound to morally, physically? Was prayer the first thing I thought of, asking The Creator to bless my day?
‘Also, did I promise to keep Holy the day, because of The Commandments that were given to remind mankind of all ages, cultures, creeds, that each day there would be times when The Commandments could, and would, encourage me to practice what was pure in thought, word, action, deed, for myself and for all others with whom I would be acquainted, in just meeting them or living with them, working with them, or just for a few moments to recognize them in a very light way?
‘Do I remember to examine my conscience before I lay my head at night to sleep the tiredness away? Do I go down The Commandments one by one, and question my thoughts, actions, reactions, or my conversations with others? Also, during the day do I ever remember to ask for help morally?’
Is it not so, that most times a request for help from The Creator or from a Saint comes through a need for aid physically, mentally?
Today as I speak, I speak as I have at no other time, because men, women and children, of all ages, use each day living it according to the habits they have formed, what is important to them at the moment, most of the time ignoring totally that each day is a Gift from The Divine, and will be accountable at a given time.
It is sad to say, throughout the world human life has forgotten Who created them, the Purpose for their creation, the Divine Love in their creation, and the Goal that nothing else in the world can exceed in any way, because at the end of one’s life the Soul is the remaining Factor that represents the one in whom It was placed at the moment of conception, and this Soul, as a Portion of The Creator, can be ‘a victim’ of the one in whom It was placed, or can be ‘a Saint’ immediately, because of whom It was placed. So be it.”
