Honor St. Thérèse by thinking of all the small things you do to try to be the best and most loving person you can be: starting the day with prayer; listening patiently to another’s woes; letting another car go ahead of you. All these things count, and all are beautiful.
How blessed we are to have you, St. Thérèse,
to show us that tiny things have magnitude in God’s eyes.
Like you, I feel small.
Thank you for pointing me to what really matters:
St. Thérèse, thank you for living a life
ever-present to the possibility of bringing your love
to the ordinary and the routine.
It’s enough for any of us to be one sweet blossom, petit-petaled.
Today, feel the humility and truth of St. Thérèse of Lisieux’s words: “Always doing the smallest right and doing it all for love.”
