Memorial of Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus, Virgin and Doctor of the Church

In the heart of the Church, my mother, I will be love, and thus I will be all things, as my desire finds its direction.

From the autobiography of St Thérèse of Lisieux, Today’s Office

SaintThereseOfLisieux invites us to practise the little way of love, not to let the possibility of offering a smile to slip by, or any small gesture that sows peace and friendship. #SeasonOfCreation

Pity me, pity me, O you my friends,

for the hand of God has struck me!

Wait for the LORD with courage;

be stouthearted, and wait for the LORD.

Go on your way;

behold, I am sending you like lambs among wolves.
