…on this, your lovely feast day, that, like you, we may be as little children and attain to our Father’s heavenly kingdom.

St. Therese de Lisieux


Grant that I may always allow myself to be guided by You, always follow Your plans, and perfectly accomplish Your holy will. Grant that in all things, great and small, today and all the days of my life, I may do whatever You may require of me.

Help me to respond to the slightest prompting of Your grace, so that I may be Your trustworthy instrument. May Your will be done in time and eternity, by me, in me, and through me.


~ St. Therese de Lisieux (1873-1897), Doctor of the Church
