Day 17 – Monday, March 20 - Following St. Thérèse’ Little Way through Lent

Day 17 – Monday, March 20
Today we continue to focus on how we can love Jesus more and make Him loved in our world.

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.  Amen.  Jesus, thank you for your love for us.  Please help us to continually learn to love you more.

St. Thérèse teaches us:
“Seeing the eternal recompense so disproportionate to the trifling sacrifices of this life, I longed to love Jesus, to love Him ardently, to give him a thousand proofs of tenderness while yet I could do so...” – Story of A Soul, Chapter V

Lord Jesus, please help us be strong today and learn to see others as you see them.  Help us to remember all our parents have taught us and remember all of the good things you do for us.

Our Father …
Hail Mary …
Glory Be …

Merciful Father, in the name of Your sweet Jesus, of the Blessed Virgin and of the Saints, I pray that I be fired with Your spirit of love, and that You will grant me the grace to make You greatly loved.  (The daily prayer that St. Thérèse taught us to say, adapted for our little lives.)

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:  Forego a treat as a sacrifice of love.  (Color in a flower for Jesus when your mom or dad has seen that it is completed!)
