St. Therese of Lisieux: Novena Day Four

I understand and I know from experience that: “The kingdom of God is within you.”  Jesus has no need of books or doctors to instruct souls; He, the Doctor of doctors, teaches without the noise of words.  Never have I heard Him speak, but I feel that He is within me at each moment; He is guiding and inspiring me with what I must say and do.  I find just when I need them certain lights that I had not seen until then, and it isn’t most frequently during my hours of prayer that these are most abundant but rather in the midst of my daily occupations.
