Bl. Marie-Eugène of the Child Jesus
Carmelite priest 1894-1967
Thérèse points out the relationship between these two virtues, confidence and poverty:
"What pleases Him is that He sees me loving my littleness and my poverty, the blind hope that I have in His mercy...That is my only treasure, dear Godmother, why would this treasure not be yours?...Oh, dear Sister, I beg you, understand your little girl, understand that to love Jesus, to be His victim of love, the weaker one is, without desires or virtues, the more suited one is for the workings of this consuming and transforming Love."
