Carmelite charism catches up and offers a childlike surrender and trust to God's Mercy and Love. It's very attractive, but obviously hard and serious work. So I enjoyed finding this article on St. Therese's humor:
She joked with the sisters about being the one to try out the new cemetery plot. And when they were talking about how they would arrange her in the coffin, she said "Well, put the candle in my hand but not those candlesticks--they're too ugly!"
She was dying a slow, suffocating, painful death from TB at the time.
Does our Holy Father come to your mind, too?
