On 1st OCTOBER the church remembers St THERESE of LISIEUX.
There is strong link between St Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Udayan, and St Joan of Arc School in Rickmansworth. What strikes me most about the work of Mother Teresa, was its simplicity – give water for the thirsty, some rice for the hungry, a smile and conversation for the lonely. She was an ordinary woman, doing unremarkable things, but doing them for Jesus and with great love.
Saint Mother Teresa chose her religious name in honour of St Therese of Lisieux. St Therese was also known for doing “small things with great love” and “all for the Lord” (the little way). None of us are beyond becoming Saints if we follow the example of these two great women.
Let us ask for the prayers of these Saints, that we would see Jesus in all people and do whatever we can, no matter how small, to share God’s mercy, peace and love with all who we meet.
St Therese of Lisieux: Pray for us. St Teresa of Calcutta: Pray for us. Hail Mary…
Challenge: Look for the little ways you can help others.
