Lent and Easter Wisdom from St. Therese of Lisieux
Thine Arms, then, O Jesus
Thine Arms, then, O Jesus, are the lift which must raise me up even unto Heaven. To get there I need not grow; on contrary, I must remain little, I must become still less.- The Story of a SoulSaint Therese of Lisieux bore much suffering in her life, from the death of her mother when she was little, to declining health during her time in the Carmelite convent, to her death at age twenty-four. Yet through all these sufferings, St. Therese continued to love Jesus in her little way. She became an example of how to keep our faith even when we are suffering and how to find our way back to God when we become lost.In Lent and Easter Wisdom, John Cleary uses passages from St. Therese’s The Story of a Soul to comfort and challenge us this Lenten season as we meditate on St. Therese’s life and the passion of Jesus Christ in the days leading to his resurrection.
