Littleness is a good thing – says St. Therese of Lisieux

IMG_1982HP_Therese_09Littleness is a great thing, according to a great Saint, whose Feast Day we celebrate today: St. Therese of Lisieux.

She spent her short life (she died at age 24) making it a point to be little, a child in Jesus’ eyes realizing that not everyone will do extraordinarily big things for God and neighbor, but that we can all do small things for love of God and neighbor.

So, if you don’t “make it big” in life, you are in good company. Not a bad thing!

I invite you to spend some time this week pondering what it truly means to be holy, to be a saint, to be great in this life and the next. And ask yourself: how would God have me make a great impact in small ways?

St. Therese, pray for us.
