This Act of Oblation by St. Thérèse of Lisieux was one of the key hallmarks of her attaining the heights of holiness in such a short time. By reading and praying these pages, you, too, will come to better trust in the merciful love of God. After Thérèse died of tuberculosis, her sister nuns found a little document in the New Testament which she always carried near her heart. It was an act of oblation, a complete dedication of herself to Christ for life. In her autobiography Thérèse admitted that she longed for martyrdom, for heroic acts, to be a great preacher. Instead the Lord demanded of her love, a love which showed itself in every action and word of every day. "...Through love alone we can become pleasing to God . . . Jesus does not look for words, only for gratitude and self-surrender ... This is all our Lord claims of us. He needs our love; he has no need of our works." 4868
