December 4, 1991
On Wednesday, December 4, 1991 at approximately 11:10 a.m., St. Theresa
Lisieux appeared to Veronica and gave her these profound words:
"Love is the essence of the odeur* of Divinity."
Veronica understands this to mean that love is intrinsically the
motivating and moving force in all of God's design. God, Who is
the embodiment of love, reflects this in His creation and has ordained
that our existence depends on love. We, as created beings made in
the image and likeness of God, must take our cue from this: first and
foremost loving our God Who is so deserving, and secondly, our neighbor
Immediately after finishing the final version of this letter, Our Lady,
with St. Theresa smiling, appeared to Veronica at 7:26 p.m. Our Lady
said: "Well done. Profound." The apparition startled Veronica, who was
in her kitchen at the time.
