Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Autumn has officially been under way for over a week. It is a beautiful time to watch nature and feed the birds and squirrels. Hope you take care of all God’s living creatures both big and small. It is a wonderful example of how we need to be compassionate and empathic for each other.
Today we celebrate the feast of St. Teresa. In her autobiography “The Story of a Soul” she referred to herself as “The Little Flower”. According to saint Therese of Lisieux we should love God in a childlike manner with confidence and self surrender. Her words can serve as a motto: “What matters in life is not great deeds, but great love”.
Therese, Teresa, Theresa (however her name is spelled or pronounced around the world) is such a special name. If you know anyone by that name, say a prayer for them. Also pray to St. Therese for her special intercessions.
October is traditionally dedicated as the month of the rosary. Meditate on its mysteries.
With continued blessings,
