October 1, The Feast Of St. Therese Of The Child Jesus
Today we celebrate the feast of our beloved St. Therese, who found a direct way to God through her Little Way of being humble and simple. Her Little Way of serving God is a model for us all, young or old, rich or poor. She promised to let fall a shower of roses to all who seek her help, and she has sent so many lovely roses my way. I smile when I think of them all.
"Believe that I shall be your true little sister for all eternity."
—St. Therese of the Child Jesus
Loving God, you blessed St. Therese with a capacity for a great love. Help us to believe in your unconditional love for each of us.
