Day 37 – Wednesday of Holy Week, April 12
During Holy Week we will be focusing even more on Love. How much Jesus loved us and learning to love Him with all our hearts!
In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. Jesus, your love is all we need. We do not need to be super popular. We do not need to have others think we are so important. Instead, we seek only to love as you love, our dear Savior!
St. Thérèse teaches us:
“O my God, You know I have never desired but to love You alone. I seek no other glory. Your Love has gone before me from my childhood, it has grown with my growth, and now it is an abyss the depths of which I cannot fathom.” – Story of A Soul, Chapter XI
Dear Father in heaven, as to love as you love is so out of reach for us little souls! Please help us! We need you every day! We love you so.
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.
