Day 33 – 6th Friday of Lent, April 7 - Following St. Thérèse’ Little Way through Lent

Day 33 – 6th Friday of Lent, April 7 
Today is the 6th Fridayof Lent!  Next Friday will be Good Friday already – we are almost to our goal!  Seeking every day to offer sacrifices for Jesus and to help make Him loved more and more in our world.  Don’t give up!  Don’t give in!  We are almost there!  We beg God to help us become little Saints!

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 not give up!  Help us to grow in holiness through our little flowers of love so that we might be your little Saints.  We only desire your will and to help make you loved more in the world.

St. Thérèse teaches us:
“O my God, Most Blessed Trinity, I desire to love Thee and to make Thee loved, to labor for the glory of holy Church by saving souls still on earth and by delivering those who suffer in Purgatory. I desire to accomplish Thy Will perfectly, and to attain to the degree of glory which Thou hast prepared for me in Thy Kingdom; in one word, I desire to be a saint, but I know that I am powerless, and I implore Thee, O my God, to be Thyself my sanctity.”

Lord Jesus, you are so precious!  Thank you for laying your life down for us!  Thank you for loving us so incredibly! Please help us to love others as you have taught us.  We know that when we can show your love, then others will come to know you better too!  Please help us to spread your love in the world in our little daily ways.

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:  Make your bed without being told.  (Color in a flower for Jesus when your mom or dad has seen that it is completed!)
