The Little Flower


I am struck again at how the sanctity of St. Thérèse started, not with great renunciations (though she had these), nor lofty contemplation (though this she was given), nor a determined life of penance (though this she lived), but in the simple, wholly unnoticed and seemingly inconsequential little obediences and self-denials of her way of life.

I imperil my soul if I think these only proper to those under vows.

Lord, in Your Will is our peace.
