October 1st Feast of St Therese of the child Jesus

As the pandemic drags on and threatens to engulf our lives once again we have need of St Therese’s words of encouragement and hope.

Oh, let us not lose the trial that Jesus is sending us, it is a gold mine to be exploited. Are we going to miss the chance? For me, prayer is a cry of gratitude and love in trial as well as in joy.It is trust and nothing but trust that must lead us to love.  I hope He will not look upon my weakness, or rather that He will use this very weakness to do His work; because the mighty God loves to show His power by making use of nothing. Yes, it is enough to humble oneself, to accept serenely one’s imperfections. Here is true holiness!
