Day 25 – Wednesday, March 29
Holiness is seek after God every day and allowing Him to consume us. It is not perfection; we all make mistakes. Yet, St. Thérèse tells us that God’s Love can take over our hearts only when we let go of ourselves.
In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. Thank you, dear Jesus, for loving us so much! Thank you for loving us even when we are imperfect and don’t live up to what you expect or what we promise. Help us to let go of ourselves so your grace can consume us.
St. Thérèse teaches us:
“Love consumes us only in the measure of our self-surrender.”
Lord Jesus, please help us to not be prideful. Help us to not hold onto selfishness and getting our own way. Help us let go of our desires so we may see yours. Help open our hearts and our eyes to your great Love. Consume us with the fire of your love, sweet Jesus. We love you!
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: Let someone else have their way when you would rather have done it your own way. (Color in a flower for Jesus when your mom or dad has seen that it is completed!)
