St. Therese Novena Day Seven: The Little Details

"These flowers are every little sacrifice, every glance and word, and the doing of the least of actions for love." - St. Therese

The Words of St. Therese

Great deeds are forbidden me. I cannot preach the Gospel nor shed my blood – but what does it matter? Others toil instead of me, and I, a little child, keep close by the throne of God and I love for those who fight. Love proves itself in deeds. I will scatter flowers, perfuming the Divine Throne, and I will sweetly sing my hymn of love. These flowers are every little sacrifice, every glance and word, and the doing of the least of actions for love.

Our Novena Prayer

Little Flower, child of God, you had great and heroic dreams to embrace everything. You had to learn your limits and focus the divine energy of love into the ordinary details and routines of life.

Inspirit me with your “Little Way” to learn to focus my energy and God’s love on the little things. Help me sweetly perfume life by simple smiles, words of encouragement, kind eyes and peaceful judgments. Let my actions speak more powerfully than my words of Jesus’ great love for each and every one of God’s children.

Keep me faithful to the details and small things that are so significant in our lives. Give me your childlike and tender spirit. Teach me how to do ordinary things with your extraordinary love.
