Pri 16 - To the Holy Face

I am Thérèse's Jesus

O Adorable Face of Jesus, the only Beauty that delights my heart, deign to imprint your Divine Likeness in me, so that you cannot look at the soul of your little spouse without contemplating Yourself.

O my Beloved, for your love, I agree not to see here below the sweetness of your Gaze, not to feel the inexpressible kiss of your Mouth, but I beg you to set me ablaze with your love, so that it consumes me quickly and soon brings forth before you:

Therese of the Holy Face
