Loving God, as we remember St Thérèse
and her holy family, teach us to live
each moment as missionary disciples in love and generosity.
May her little way lead us to discern your will
in loving surrender to what the Spirit is saying,
and may we know that with you
everything is grace.



“After my death, I will let fall a shower of roses”
