O Gracious Father, who didst call thy servant Therese to a life of fervent prayer; Give unto us the spirit of prayer and zeal for the ministry of the Gospel, that the love of Christ may be known throughout all the world; through the same, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Today the church celebrates the life of S. Therese of Lisieux. Also known as ‘The Little Flower’, a discalced Carmelite known for her sanctity and devotion to Eucharistic meditation. ‘Holiness consists simply in doing God’s will, and just being what God wants us to be.’ pic.twitter.com/v280JWSwJ4
