Description

St. Therese always longed to be a Saint, but when she compared her life to the Saints, so felt as far removed as a grain of sand trampled underfoot and taken far from the mountain peak.

In churning over these thoughts, and holding fast to the idea that God does not put desires on our heart that He does not intend to fulfill, she knew it was still possible for her to become a Saint.

And from that, we get her Little Way:

You make me think of a little child that is learning to stand but does not yet know how to walk. In his desire to reach the top of the stairs to find his mother, he lifts his little foot to climb the first step. It is all in vain, and at each renewed effort he falls. Well, be like that little child.

Always keep lifting your foot to climb the ladder of holiness, and do not imagine that you can mount even the first step. All God asks of you is good will.

From the top of the ladder He looks lovingly upon you, and soon, touched by your fruitless efforts, He will Himself come down, and, taking you in His Arms, will carry you to His Kingdom never again to leave Him.”

Do ordinary acts with extraordinary love and you will be lifting your foot to climb that step, and God will provide the graces you need to make those virtuous acts.

Your Impact

For every order, 10% of all proceeds will go to organizations who provide resources to at risk women before and after birth.

The first is The Pregnancy Care Center of Rockford. They area a local organization to me,  providing resources and care for free to women in crisis pregnancies, from ultrasounds to parenting classes to post abortion healing.

The second is the Sisters of Life, a newer religious community founded in 1991 in New York to promote the dignity of every human life. They have houses for women to come live with them during and after their pregnancy as they get back on their feet, as well as counseling for post abortion healing, and other missions.
