St. Thérèse, guide us on the path of childlike trust in God’s providence, and may your “Little Way” lead us to a deeper relationship with our Heavenly Father. Inspire us to live each moment with love and faith, just as you did during your earthly journey. Amen.
“One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple.”
