Day 30 – Tuesday, April 4
Love, love, love! To love someone means you think of their needs before your own. It means you give of yourself to another. St. Thérèse tells us that love is enough for us! That’s easy enough! So simple and yet, yes, it is sometimes hard to do. Let us stay strong in perseverance as we only have 10 days left of Lent! We are nearing our finish line – nearing the beauty of Jesus’ glorious Resurrection! Let’s love with all our hears in every little thing.
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! You are the source of our Love and its ending point. Please cover us with your love every day!
St. Thérèse teaches us:
“I desire no sensible consolation in loving; provided Jesus feel my love that is enough for me. Oh! to love Him and to make Him loved...how sweet it is...” – V letter to Mother Agnes of Jesus
Lord Jesus, please help us to love others more. Help us to persevere when it is hard to love. Help us to suffer well – to offer each challenge as a flower of love to you, 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: Speak a kind word to someone who would not expect it. (Color in a flower for Jesus when your mom or dad has seen that it is completed!)
