Thank God For St. Therese
"Scarcely three minutes pass by without a loving thought of God."
For the rest of us, maybe not. Maybe it's more like three hours, or worse, days.
Whenever I fall short of loving Jesus as I should, I thank Him for creating St. Therese. I don't think that aside from the Blessed Virgin Mary I could find a heart more on fire with love for Him.
I don't call on my saintly little friend as much as I did at one time. These days, I spread the petitions out a little more. St. Joseph for this, St. Nicholas for that, the Blessed Mother for more than I can say. I know St. Therese does not feel neglected because, after all, she does what she does for love of Him. Even her last words said as much.
"My God, I love You."
