A brief, Catholic, daily prayer experience of simple faith in the Carmelite tradition. The Daily Disconnect is a daily podcast focusing on the exercise of prayer from a Catholic Carmelite perspective.
My joy is to love suffering. I smile in the midst of tears and with thanksgiving the thorns as well as the flowers.
St. Therese of Lisieux
Therese did not choose to suffer, but recognized that whatever came into her life was an opportunity to praise and thank God, whether it be “thorns” or “flowers.” Pray for the virtue of contentment today.
