Our Lady's Closeness to the Dying: Wednesday, October 14, 2015

J.M.J. As "The Little Flower," Saint Therese of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face was on her deathbed, she fixed her gaze on a nearby Statue of Our Lady and said

"Oh with what fervor I have prayed to her. And yet it has been sheer agony, without a ray of consolation. Earth's air is failing me, when shall I breathe the air of Heaven? I could never have believed it possible to suffer so intensely. I can explain it only by my great longing to save souls." 

May we never forget The Little Flower's words as we commend our dying brothers and sisters to Our Lady!
