Day 38 – Holy Thursday, April 13
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, you never stopped to decide whether or not to love us. You loved unconditionally and without reservation. How we wish to love as you love!
St. Thérèse teaches us:
“When one loves, one does not calculate.”
Dear Father in heaven, teach us to forget the cost of love. Please help us to see Your face in those around us and love them for their sake and not because of anything we might gain. Thank you, Father, thank you for your love.
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: Smile at someone you meet – it is the beginning of love! (Color in a flower for Jesus when your mom or dad has seen that it is completed!)
