Words to live by on the Feast of St. Therese of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face:
“If I did not simply live from one moment to the next, it would be impossible for me to keep my patience. I can see only the present, I forget the past, and I take good care not to think about the future. We get discouraged and feel despair because we brood about the past and the future. It is such a folly to pass one’s time fretting, instead of resting quietly on the heart of Jesus.”
St. Therese, help me always to believe as you did, in God’s great love for me, so that I might imitate your “Little Way” each day.
