O Mother Blest!

Fain would I sing, O Mother blest! the reasons why I love thee; / Why e'en to name thy name, with joy, O Mary! fills my heart; / And why the glorious thoughts of thee, in greatness far above me, / Inspire no fear within my soul, so dear and sweet thou art.

"Considering how imperfect I was and still am, yet I am daringly confident that one day I shall become a great Saint. I am not relying on my own merits, because I haven't any. I hope in Him Who is Virtue and Sanctity itself; He alone will clothe me with His own merits and make me a Saint." ~ St. Therese of Lisieux.
