The Good God

February 13
"The good God does not need years to accomplish His work of love in a soul; one ray from His Heart can, in an instant, make His flower bloom for eternity."
-St. Therese of Lisieux
 Today's Reflection:
When we trust in God and faithfully ask Him to change our hearts, He does so as swiftly as is necessary. Where can God heal and change my heart today? Do I trust Him to do so?

True charity

January 22
"True charity consists in putting up with one's neighbor's faults, never being surprised by his weakness, and being inspired by the least of his virtues."
-St. Therese of Lisieux
Today's Reflection:
Can we love our neighbor as we love ourselves even when he is irksome, irritable, annoying, or just plain grumpy? How do we show the true face of God's love despite the battle raging within us.

By Ellen Mongan

“I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks, as if they were great and noble.” Who do you think said that? St. Therese, the little flower of Jesus? St. Teresa of Calcutta? St. Teresa of Avila? No! The correct answer is Helen Keller.

Hidden Struggles

September 28

God does not despise these hidden struggles with ourselves, so much richer in merit because they are unseen. By our little acts of charity practiced in the shade we convert souls far away, we help missionaries, we win for them abundant alms, and by that means, build actual dwellings both spiritual and material for our Eucharistic Lord.

                                                                        -St. Therese of Lisieux

The Value of Life

September 26

The value of life does not depend upon the place we occupy. It depends upon the way we occupy that place.
