Awake, awake! Listen…do you hear Me? My Heart beats out its song: “I am with you!”
No longer are you alone, shamed, or forgotten. "Emmanuel!”…is whispered through
all creation as stars turn their light and kings are drawn to worship in silent love.
I now shatter the age-old lie that has hung over you for long years—
that I am “against you.”
I am for you! I am with you!
Open up the door, shake off the dust.
I bend down and lift you up. I clothe you with richest robes and garlands.
Break into shouts! Dance in the light! Come down these paths of joy where My Heart beats— and join your joy with Mine.
Sr. Thérèse, CFR
