One thought on “on the feast of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux

  1. Thanks, Clayton. Theresa is a gift. Dorothy Day found a needed balance for her social activism in Theresa’s insight that God takes our smallest efforts, done with love, into His redemptive work. Dorothy needed to be apprised of this because of her depression over the seeming uselessness of her own efforts at curtailing poverty and violence. She herself was to write a biography of Theresa whom the Church declared “Patroness of the missions.”
