Remember, O Jesus, that I entered Carmel in order to bring souls to your kingdom of heaven.
St. Therese of Lisieux
Drawn to Carmel to share the love of God with all, Therese was deeply committed to her call. As disciples of Jesus, we too are asked for this same wholehearted dedication. Pray today for the grace to follow the call of our discipleship without hesitation.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
