Day 12 – Tuesday, March 14 - Following St. Thérèse’ Little Way through Lent

We are making our way now on Day 12 of Lent! St. Thérèse reminds us that all our sacrifices help Christ to be better known to those around us.  All of our acts of love are a prayer – a gift to help Jesus be more known, so that souls may be saved and spend eternity with Him in heaven.  Your efforts of little flowers make a big difference!

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Lord Jesus, we love you!  Help us to persevere in our Little Flower acts of love and sacrifice.  Help us to realize how much a little act of love can make a big difference in someone’s life.

St. Thérèse teaches us:
“There is one ONLY THING to do here below: to love Jesus, to win souls for Him so that He may be loved. Let us seize with jealous care every least opportunity of self sacrifice. Let us refuse Him nothing - He does so want our love!” –  VI letter to her sister Celine

Lord Jesus, thank you for your great love. Thank you for always helping us to persevere in our acts of love and sacrifice, Jesus!

Our Father …
Hail Mary …
Glory Be …

St. Thérèse, pray for us!

Today’s Little Flower activity:  Call someone to brighten their day.  Maybe this could be an elderly relative or someone who may be lonely.  (Color in a flower for Jesus when your mom or dad has seen that it is completed!)
