I shall receive everything from God."

[Sr. Agnes of Jesus to St. Therese] I was telling her: "Alas, I'll have nothing to offer to God when I die; my hands will be empty, and this saddens me very much."

"Well, you're not like a 'baby' (she called herself this at times) who finds herself in the same circumstances, nevertheless. Even if I had accomplished all the works of St. Paul, I would still consider myself to be a 'useless servant.' But it is precisely this which makes up my joy, for having nothing, I shall receive everything from God."

From, St. Therese of Lisieux, Her Last Conversations.
