If Sunday, October 1 were a weekday it would be the feast of St. Therese of Lisieux. This Doctor of the Church defined her path to God and holiness as The Little Way, which consisted of child-like love and trust in God. Here are a few quotes of hers:
“You know well enough that Our Lord does not look so much at the greatness of our actions, nor even at their difficulty, but at the love with which we do them.”
“Kneeling before the tabernacle, I can think of only one thing to say to our Lord: “My God, you know that I love You.” And I feel that my prayer does not weary Jesus; knowing my weakness, He is satisfied with my good will.”
St. Therese, the Little Flower of Jesus, pray for us!!!
