Praise To God, A Prayer of St. Therese of the Child Jesus

My Lord and my God
I have realized that whoever undertakes to do anything
for the sake of earthly things
or to earn the praise of others deceives himself.
Today one thing pleases the world,
tomorrow another.
What is praised on one occasion
is denounced on another.
Blessed be You,
my Lord and my God,
for You are unchangeable for all eternity.
Whoever serves You faithfully to the end
will enjoy life without end in eternity.

Amen.
