Day 9 – 2nd Friday of Lent, March 10 - Following St. Thérèse’ Little Way through Lent

Today we ask God to increase our love for Him!  Grown-ups can do great things, but as children what can you do to show God your love?  St. Thérèse says you only need to spend time with Jesus and stay close to Him.  And letting our hearts fill with love of Jesus is worthy of a thousand treasures!

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Lord Jesus, we are not great – we are so little.  Yet, we give you our love with all our hearts and we know you will be pleased to receive it! Thank you, sweet Jesus.

St. Thérèse teaches us:
“Love! ... that is what I ask ... I know but one thing now - to love Thee, O Jesus! Glorious deeds are not for me, I cannot preach the Gospel, shed my blood...what does it matter? My brothers toil instead of me, and I, the little child, I keep quite close to the royal throne, I love for those who fight.” – Story of A Soul, Chapter XI

Lord Jesus, draw us deep into your heart.  Send us your Holy Spirit to help us place our smallness in Our Mother Mary’s hands so she might make it beautiful for you.

Our Father …
Hail Mary …
Glory Be …

St. Thérèse, pray for us!

Today’s Little Flower activity:  Share your love for Jesus with someone today.  (Color in a flower for Jesus when your mom or dad has seen that it is completed!)
