Rooted and grounded in love, may you be able … to know Christ’s love, which surpasses understanding.  – Eph 3:17-19

Reflection.  The feast of St. Therese of the Child Jesus reminds us of her simple childlike faith.  She once said, “Everything I have ever done, I have done to make God happy.”  When you love others you enjoy pleasing them.  Such was her love of God.

Prayer.  Lord, give me the grace to be a loving child in Your presence.  Teach me how to make You happy.
