Day 13 – Wednesday, March 15 - Following St. Thérèse’ Little Way through Lent

Day 13 – Wednesday, March 15
We try daily to do good, but the greatest acts are the smallest.  And even these small acts of love can only be done with the help of Jesus!  We need Jesus’ love and how freely He will give it if we but ask Him!

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.  Thank you for loving us, dearest Jesus!  Please continue to fill our little hearts with your love.  We want to love others as You love, but need your help to do it.  We even need your help to love You, sweet Jesus.  Thank you for the abundance of love You pour over us daily.

St. Thérèse teaches us:
“Love attracts love, mine rushes forth unto Thee, it would fain fill up the abyss which attracts it; but alas! it is not even as one drop of dew lost in the Ocean. To love You as You love me I must borrow Your very Love - then only, can I find rest.” – Story of A Soul, Chapter XI!

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!
In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.  Amen.

Today’s Little Flower activity:  Say an extra decade of the rosary (Or if you are under 7 years old, you can say just four extra ‘Hail Mary’s) for an intention of another person.  Then make a little card to tell them you prayed for them!  (Color in a flower for Jesus when your mom or dad has seen that it is completed!)
