From the LOOP
St. Théodore Guérin (1798 – 1856) grew up in a fiercely anti-Catholic France. Her parents hid a seminarian in their home, and he helped them form the young girl in the Faith. After joining the Sisters of Providence, she was sent to Indiana to found a convent and girls’ boarding school. She suffered terrible persecution from both Protestants and Catholics – her own bishop excommunicated her for allegedly “tampering with the Rule of life.” She was restored to the sacraments after his death and went on to found schools and build up the faith in the United States.

Jesus pours himself out for us. So must we- since we are in him, and he is in us.

Quotes from the Little Flower —

You know well enough that Our Lord does not look so much at the greatness of our actions, nor even at their difficulty, but at the love with which we do them.

When one loves, one does not calculate

My little way? It is trust and love in all things, at all times. It is no more complicated than that.

“When we try to change God into something comfortable, who enables our sins, and never challenges us, we always try to change Him to less than He is. When God changes us to be more like Him, He always makes us greater than we are.” – Fr. Bill Peckman
