Therese Neumann (9 April 1898 – 18 September 1962) was a German Catholic mystic.


  • I resigned myself to the will of God because the duty of every Christian is to accept the cross which the Saviour sends. It would be a sin to strive against the will of God. I did not accept the cross because of the cross, but in devotion to the Cross of the Saviour… My pains by themselves are of no avail to save souls, but only when united with the pains of Our Lord. If it were possible, I would willingly accept sufferings in Heaven in order to bring more souls to the Saviour.
    • Quoted in Ann Ball, Modern Saints, vol. 2, 1991, ch. 45.
