To be little is to recognize one's nothingness, to expect everything from God as a little child expects everything of its father.
St. Therese of Lisieux
The call to be little and childlike is to recognize one’s total dependence on God, as young children expect and trust all their needs to be fulfilled by their parents. As you pray today, rest in the arms of your heavenly Father.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
