The Guardian Angels, memorial

"See that you do not despise one of these little ones"

Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus (1873-1897), Carmelite, Doctor of the Church 
Poem « Jesus, my beloved, remember ! » ; v.9; 11-12; 16
"See that you do not despise one of these little ones"

Remember the heavenly affection 
You heaped on the littlest children. 
I too want to receive your caresses. 
Ah! give me your ravishing kisses.
To enjoy your sweet presence in Heaven, 
I'll practice the virtues of childhood.
Didn't you often say:
"Heaven is for children"? 

"Come to me, poor burdened souls, 
Your heavy loads will soon be lightened, 
And, quenched forever,
From your breast waters shall spring up" (Mt 11,28; Jn 4,15).
O my Jesus! I thirst for this water, I crave it. 
Deign to flood my soul with its divine torrents. 
To make my dwelling 
In the Ocean of Love, 
I come to you.

Remember that as a child of light
I often forget to serve my King well.
Oh! Take pity on my great misery.
In your love, Jesus, forgive me.
Make me wise in the ways of Heaven.
Show me the secrets hidden in the Gospel.
Ah! That golden book
Is my dearest treasure,

Remember the Angels' feast, 
Remember Heaven's harmony 
And the joy of the sublime hosts 
When a sinner raises his eyes to you.
Ah! I want to increase that great joy. 
Jesus, I want to pray unceasingly for sinners.
That I came to Carmel
To fill your beautiful Heaven,
