The Resurrection of Our Lord: 
in the words of St. Therese of Lisieux
 "I felt there was a heaven and that this heaven is peopled with souls who actually love me, who consider me their child.  This impression remains in my heart."

"In order that Love be fully satisfied, it is necessary that It lower Itself, and It lower Itself to nothingness and transform this nothingness into fire.  O Jesus, I know it, love is repaid by love alone."

"For me to love You as You love me, I would have to borrow Your own love."

"Since Jesus has reascended into heaven, I can follow Him only in the traces He has left; but how luminous these traces are!"

-from The Story of A Soul: Autobiography of St. Therese of Lisieux
