Kindness is my only guiding star. In its light, I sail a straight route…
Let us go forward in peace, our eyes fixed on Heaven, the one goal of all our works. ~ St. Therese
I am a little brush that Jesus has chosen in order to paint His own image in the souls entrusted to my care. ~ St. Therese
Just as the sun shines simultaneously on the tall cedars and on each little flower as though it were alone on the earth, so Our Lord is occupied particularly with each soul as though there were no others like it. ~ St. Therese
The Society of the Little Flower is helping St. Therese’s sisters at the Carmel in Lisieux rebuild the convent.
St. Therese showed herself to be a strong willed woman, a woman of profound faith in God, even through the darkest period of her life.
What is the meaning of ‘the little way’ of St Therese? It is an image that tries to capture her understanding of being a disciple of Jesus Christ, of seeking holiness of life in the ordinary and the everyday.
