  • St. Therese of Lisieux Teaches Us to Live Simply in Great Love
    her understanding that every aspect of our lives no matter how small must be given up to God As a mother I find St Therese s Little Way attractive because my days are filled with messes dishes laundry teaching my four year old and sacrificing for my husband In all honesty I am still struggling to offer everything as a sacrifice and I have plenty of days that I grumble and complain Therese s approach is one that every single person can embrace and learn to live through discipline perseverance and prayer The most trivial work the least action when inspired by love is often of greater merit than the most outstanding achievement It is not their face value that God judges our deeds even when they bear the stamp of apparent holiness but solely on the measure of love we put into them Spiritual Treasures from St Therese of Lisieux ed by Cynthia Cavnar page 72 Live Each Moment in Service to God Throughout our day we are given many moments to offer in service to our families and as a sacrifice to God In fact members of the laity are called to offer their lives as sacrifice by virtue of the common priesthood this differs from the hierarchical priesthood of Christ that we entered to at Baptism We participate in the priesthood of Christ when we offer sacrifices in our lives We must use our moments well We have only the short moments of our life to love Jesus and the devil knows this well and so he tries to consume our life with useless works Spiritual Treasures page 53 God Calls Each One of Us Differently Catholics read the lives of the saints in order to learn how to live a life of holiness The saints go before us and blaze a trail ahead of us In studying their lives however we can experience a sense of fear discouragement or unworthiness in the face of their experiences We feel like we will never measure up or we are terrified at the thought of certain supernatural experiences Therese understood this well She wanted to live simply in sacrifice to Jesus I know there are some saints who spend their life in the practice of astonishing mortifications to expiate for their sins but what of it There are many mansions in the house of my heavenly Father John 14 2 Jesus has said and it is because of this that I follow the way he is tracing out for me Spiritual Treasures page 54 It is important for us to remember that God has called us to walk our unique path We are not necessarily called to sleep on a stone floor wear a hair shirt and fast most days As we study the lives of holy people we need to keep that in mind so that we do not get discouraged Living in Charity Living a life of sacrifice to others for the Glory of God comes with

  • Cultivating Wonder in Our Daily Lives
    some aspect of nature Flowers trees grass mountains ocean rivers desert snow sunsets stars etc Is it the way the sun glistens off of your child s hair or the way your spouse smiles Is it great stained glass or a gloriously adorned Tabernacle The possibilities are vast Figure out the things that incite wonder in you and then begin to focus on wonder in each moment when it comes to you Intentionally seek them out while you are out doing your daily tasks Perhaps take a lunch break even if only 15 minutes outside Go for a quick walk Stop by your parish and spend 10 minutes with Our Lord who is reposed in the Tabernacle Even if you are stuck at your computer try using a search engine to find beautiful pictures to wonder at Some days I search out pictures related to the season and others I look for the beautiful cathedrals of Europe or the Holy Land Another way to instill wonder is to upset the apple cart so to speak Change your routine every now and then Have dinner outside or at a park My daughter and I have picnics on our living room floor during the winter G K Chesterton was known to have picnics in his home with his wife Walk to work one day or cook a new meal for your family or yourself Attend Eucharistic Adoration at a local parish There is nothing like Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament to instill awe and wonder Wonder also comes from gratitude Foster a deep sense of gratitude This is something that I am working on too If we are thankful then we are more likely to pay attention When we are upset or ungrateful we tend to put our heads down and fold our arms Try to think of things you are thankful for each day It can be the simplest things like your morning coffee or eggs sizzling on the stove It should be the obvious things like family friends and the Mass You will find that when you pay attention to the little things you are thankful for the more you will begin to wonder at those things that seemed mundane Today make an effort to wonder Step outside and look for something to marvel at I am an avid gardener so each day I check the progress of my flowers The rose garden that I planted for my three miscarried babies is about to bloom for the first time this spring It gives me a sense of peace and wonder watching the roses open while reminding me of my babies I love watching God work By focusing on the beauty and wonder around us we are able to contemplate the deeper mysteries of God My daughter is not bored of dirt sticks and flowers She sees them as amazing tools and fun God is not bored of his creation His creation is good and an endless array of light
