The good God says to me 'Give always without concerning yourself with results.'
These are comforting words, indeed! They remind us that our efforts should not be judged simply by immediate, measureable results. St. Therese's own life bore witness to this. It is remarkable to think of the difference her life has made, especially since her life was very short and mostly hidden in a convent. We should not be disturbed if we see no effects from our efforts, as long as we know we have truly done all we could - if we have 'given of ourselves.'
