St. Therese Speaks to Us - Humility
"Oh! when I think of all I have to acquire!" exclaimed a novice. "Say, rather, to lose. Jesus, it is, who charges Himself with the care of filling your soul according as you free it from its imperfections. I plainly see that you are taking the wrong road, you will never arrive at the end of your journey. You wish to scale a mountain and the good God wants to make you descend; He is waiting for you low down in the fertile valley of humility." Excerpted from Counsels and Reminiscences.
Oh little St. Therese, instill in our hearts a love of your little way. Help us to see the graces that come to us when we humble ourselves before the Lord.
