Today is the feast of St. Therese, a Carmelite nun who entered an enclosed monastery at 15 and died at 24. Now she is known for her 'little way' of spiritual
union with God. Reflect upon a small act of kindness, love or healing you still recall today? A small photo or quote tucked into the business man's wallet. Or the three fresh cut garden flowers placed in a recycled jar to extend to a neighbor.
Or the embrace of peace from a friend. Or the words I'm sorry. I was wrong. Or the warm smile from a newcomer. Or an extra done for no one to see. St. Therese teaches about the complexity of a deep interior joy that leads a sinner
to praise the God of all creation. St. Therese we need your intercession. Today and evermore. Shower down roses that we may know you are here! Strengthen us in the fire of the Spirit!
