Monday, October 1, 2007: (St. Therese, the little flower)

October 1, 2007

St. Therese said: “My dear little one, John, I am so joy filled to see you at this, my basilica, on my feast day.  I sent you the smell of roses as a sign of my presence for you.  You have read of My ‘Little Way’ and it is really a life of humility and simplicity walking with Jesus, my love.  If I could offer you some spiritual advice, it is to live more simply without letting so many earthly things clutter your life to distract you from Jesus and your mission.  Continue your daily consecration in giving everything over to Jesus.  You know that I prayed and suffered much in the contemplative life in my Carmelite Order.  The Lord’s message of spending five to ten minutes in silence during your nightly holy hour is a beautiful way to leave your heart open so He can touch you with His Word.  Pray often and continue to be faithful to Jesus in following His Commandments, his direction in your mission, and carrying your daily cross on the narrow road to heaven.  I am encouraging all souls to love my Jesus, and to do everything for Him.”
