Today is the Memorial of St. Therese of the Child Jesus. She is my beloved saint. I first read her The Story of a Soul and was deeply moved by her simple love and trust in Jesus. There's great joy in her childlike faith. Her Little Way shows that we can all be saints ~ this was eye-opening for me. I truly admire her.
At today's Mass, the Alleluia verse from Matthew 11: "Blessed are you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth; you have revealed to little ones the mysteries of the kingdom." And the Communion verse from Matthew 18: "Unless we change and become like little children, says the Lord, you shall not enter the kingdom of heaven."
I am thinking of the ambitious, the well-educated, the sophisticated, the self-centered, the self-reliant, and the proud of today. How hard it would be for them to turn and become like little children! Then, of course, nothing is impossible for God.
