St. Therese’s longing for sainthood can help us refocus on spiritual healing.
St. Therese’s teachings on accepting our role in God’s garden and the path to emotional health.
Our relationships with others can be a blessing or a challenge. St. Therese struggled to get along with others at the convent but found a way to let God’s love shine through.
Large or small, we are all important instruments in God’s great work. He can heal the sufferings of our broken hearts.
St. Therese never wanted to be a saint by halves. She chose to give all to God.
Jesus, Son of God, we need Your healing touch! Free us of denial and help us own our brokenness and stress – bathe us in God’s mercy and forgiveness that we might be free and more fully alive.
“God was pleased all through my life to surround me with love, and the first memories I have are stamped with smiles and the most tender caresses…”
