Retrieved 22 April Islam Question and Answer. Retrieved 20 May If yes, how can we understand that? Archived from the original on What virgins? Sunan Ibn Majah. Abu Umama narrated: "The Messenger of God said, 'Everyone that God admits into paradise will be married to 72 wives; two of them are houris and seventy of his inheritance of the [female] dwellers of hell. All of them will have libidinous sex organs and he will have an ever-erect penis. Al-Itqan fi Ulum al-Qur'an. Each time we sleep with a Houri we find her virgin. Besides, the penis of the Elected never softens.
The erection is eternal; the sensation that you feel each time you make love is utterly delicious and out of this world and were you to experience it in this world you would faint. Each chosen one will marry seventy [sic] houris, besides the women he married on earth, and all will have appetizing vaginas. II pp.

The Reward of Those on the Right After. The first thought was traditional. The originality comes in the conclusion. It is indeed the case that the feeling of getting nowhere is a sort of indirect guarantee of being on the right road. But I do not let it rest at that. When she was seriously ill one of the Sisters asked her to perform some superfluous service: Therese, betraying her momentary annoyance, then stood there silently blushing. I, who am so good at preaching to others! I am glad that you were present to observe my failure.
Not that Therese loves her weakness for its own sake. But she prefers to be in a condition where she is naked to the grace of God. Weakness, not only physical but moral weakness, also brings with it a marked sensitivity to grace which she would not have apart from her failures. In this fallen world that is only possible through constant humiliations. Without them the soul would soon relapse into contentment and transform the uniqueness of eternity into a long extent of time. From any involuntary thoughts of my own superiority, such as imagining that I have acquired some virtue which I am certain to be able to exercise.
For then I should be relying on my own strength, and whoever does that is in danger of plunging into the abyss. But the contrasts between Therese and the Reformers are equally striking. What divides Therese from Luther is that the drama of sin never entwines itself round her soul. But she is only acquainted with this drama within the framework of her experience in the cloister. But more of that later. These renunciations form the entrance to the realm of ultimate love, a love so delicate as to require special laws for its workings.
All lovers love freely, and freely take upon themselves the command of the beloved. They treat his wishes as commands, and subject themselves to him as servants; to those standing outside this relationship it is all incomprehensible, they cannot grasp its laws. Few theologians have shown the same skill as Therese in mapping out the realm of love; she has sketched a sort of map of the spirit on which certain hills and rivers are noted for the first time. But how much even then she has left to be discovered! For the saint caritas becomes justitia; if he were ever to make the distinction in his own case he would know that he was not obeying the law of perfect love.
As was pointed out earlier, since reaching the age of reason her relationship towards God had never been legal, but always personal. She thinks only about God, whom she loves — whether this or that is the way to give him joy, or how she must act in order to come into line with his will.
The care she expends will appear exaggerated to the average Christian; the unbeliever will treat it as crude anthropomorphism. Therese knows better. For her there is nothing more tender than God and his love, nothing more delicate and precious, requiring to be handled with the utmost care.
Therese wishes all her life long to be doing what Veronica did once: to console Our Lord, and lighten his burden by her boundless self-surrender. Here, more than ever, we must allow her to speak for herself.

He finds His disciples in this world lukewarm and indifferent; and amongst His own disciples He finds very few, alas, who surrender themselves unreservedly to the tenderness of His boundless love. How favored we are to be able to understand the intimate secrets of our Spouse. Our souls understand the language of Your love; we long to wipe Your sweet face and console You for the neglect of the wicked.
Even when I feel nothing that can be offered to Him, I shall as tonight give Him that nothing! I find that it goes so well with Marie of the Holy Face [i. Let her win Him souls, especially the souls she loves… Let her boldly face the soldiers, that is to say the world, to come to Him… Oh! Let us give, give to Jesus, let us be misers to others, but spendthrifts to Him! So this very descent, this emptying of the soul, is simply a spontaneous gesture of love, an automatic movement to catch him as he falls, so that he lights gently on the ground without being hurt.
Jesus tells us to come down! But where must we come down? That is where we must come down, if we are to serve as a dwelling for Jesus; we must be so poor that we have not where to lay our heads… Jesus wants us to receive Him in our hearts; by now, doubtless, they are empty of creatures; but alas!
I feel that mine is not wholly empty of me, which is why Jesus tells me to come down. And I too want to hide my face, I want my Beloved alone to be able to see it … that in my heart at least He may lay down His dear head and feel that there He is recognized and understood. This care for our Lord eventually becomes the essential mark of sanctity. In order to please those who are suffering one has to tread lightly, not to disturb them. A novice imagined she was doing a great work when she promised that in future she would not cry anywhere except in the presence of God.
Do nothing of the sort. You ought to be less sad in His presence than in the face of creatures. Our dear Master has only His monasteries to gladden His heart; He comes to us to rest, to forget the ceaseless complaints of His friends in the world; because generally people on earth moan and groan instead of appreciating the value of the Cross; and you intend to be just the same as other mortals?
Really, that is not selfless love. It is up to us to console Jesus, not up to Him to console us. It is less from her words than from the uncompromising way she unmasks any hidden self-pity that we see how she is in earnest; and she assumes that anyone with the least inkling of Christianity must share her attitude. At first I never used to manage it, but now it is a habit which I am very glad to have contracted. So we should not let anyone notice how we are being hurt. It is really a question of delicacy and tact not to complain of the beat and cold, or wipe away sweat, or rub our frozen hands together — or if we do, to do it secretly, so as not to reproach the good God.
How boorish it would be to accept them with a gloomy countenance, and so burden Him with our ingratitude! I love Him so much that I am glad to give Him pleasure with my love and my little sacrifices, without His needing to know that they come from me. By knowing about them and seeing them He is, so to speak, obliged to reward me, and I want to spare Him the trouble. To comfort Him I beseech you to smile without ceasing. This day, take Your rest… It is my turn to fight and suffer. One must not only smile upon him, one must also do everything to bring a smile to his lips.
I, who am but a little soul, labor only for His pleasure, and I would be happy to bear the very greatest suffering if that would make Him smile just for once. And as if to assure her, during the night of temptation, that it is he who is testing her he sends external tokens of it —little favors. He sends her flowers; a robin redbreast hops onto her bed, looks at her knowingly and then performs lots of amusing antics. How good Our Lord is! How tender and loving!
How easily His heart is touched. It makes all her movements light and quick, unhampered by care. Childish imagery is the reflection of a much wider reality — of the all-embracing universe of love — the universe of play. God is at play with men; that is, he handles them in a divine fashion, according to his own laws — for there are none higher. Quite early perhaps through contact with the Italian people? I told Him not to treat me like a precious toy such as children only look at and dare not touch, but like a little ball of no value that He could throw on the ground, kick, pierce, leave in a corner or press to His , just as He pleased.
In a word, I wished to amuse the little Jesus and abandon myself to His childish whims. And He has granted my prayer. In Rome Jesus pierced His little toy … no doubt He wished to see what was inside … and then, satisfied at His discovery, He dropped His little ball and went to sleep. Then stay in His hand. May the darling Child stroke you and draw you to His breast, and occasionally throw you aside — let it all be your joy.
