Saint Therese, with what happiness you let yourself be taught on the lap of your father, your dear Pauline, and your good godmother! You are docile when they lead you and Jesus becomes your only Master. Today, by making you a doctor, the Church is offering us your teaching. Accompany us on your little path and we will respond with love to Jesus' love. Getting closer to you, we will learn to recognize him as our Master and Lord and to move forward with him full of trust, for today and for ever. Amen.
Take a moment to treasure up all these things and ponder them in your heart (cf Luke 2,19)
Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer everyone. Col 4:6
