Happy Memorial of St Thérèse of the Child Jesus – October 1 Although she was only fifteen, Theresa did not expect to be babied. “Obedience, prayer and sacrifice” were her program. She had a thirst to suffer for love of God. May Jesus make me a martyr.
“I understand now that charity consists in bearing with the faults of others, in not being surprised at their weakness, in being edified by the smallest acts of virtue we see them practice.”– Saint Thérèse of Lisieux
