Today’s celebration of the feast of St. Therese again reminds us of the power of each facet of our lives. Her life theme of “doing little things with great love” speaks of the mystery of how everything we do, even the smallest actions, can have a profound impact. The smile we offer someone may remind them of the good in their lives. The door we open for someone may give them hope when they thought they couldn’t manage one more thing. The word of encouragement we provide may be what keeps someone from entering the dark space of despair.
Even those things we do that no one sees are expressions of our love for God, Who deserves and desires all our love.
What “little thing” will you do today with “great love”?
