“Your Face is my only homeland. It’s my Kingdom of love. It’s my cheerful meadow.” – #CanticletotheHolyFace by #SaintThérèseofLisieux

How I want to see Your face. To behold the light that shines from You. The Beauty that is absolute. Holiness. Meekness. Love.

Is this not Heaven, My God? To see You as You really are? There is nothing else. Eternity is found In Your face.

Through all of my sin. Through every action I have done to hurt you. Through every betrayal of my baptism. I beg of you, My Lord and My God, please have mercy. I have nothing to give. Nothing to bring. Only my sin.

But, O My Lord, how I long to see Your face.
