St Thérèse of Lisieux
01/October/2007 Filed in: Jottings
Feastday of the Little Flower. Feastday of the Little Diamond, more like. The irritating touches of soppiness ought not to mask the strength of Thérèse's character and whole-hearted pursuit of holiness. She is a good reminder to contemplatives of the apostolic zeal which should exist in the cloister, and in her longing to be a priest, a good reminder to the clergy of the immense privilege of their vocation.
