One Carmelite sister delighted in splashing dirty laundry water in Thérèse of Lisieux’s face. Another criticized her for being young and impatient. Through these and other aggravations, Thérèse developed what we know as the Little Way—serving God in the small things.
St. Thérèse of Lisieux,
the way you offered up
I ask your help in doing the same
with the people and situations
where I find it difficult to see God.
Return thoughtlessness, rudeness, and disrespect with love.
