The Gift of St Therese

“Perfection lies in being just what he wants us to be.” Therese of Lisieux understood our unique identity in God, and spent her life bringing others to know this truth, leading her to describe herself one as “”the mother of souls.” But Therese is also widely known as “The Little Flower” for her simplicity and her belief in smallness as an attitude before God.

Allied to smallness is weakness, and therefore Therese found this to be an essential part of the Christian’s journey, encouraging us to be ‘joyful’ in it as it leads us to God on a daily basis. Such gratitude overflows her thinking, making her praise and prayer simple and immediate.
