“I know now that true charity consists in bearing all of our neighbors’ defects—not being surprised at their weakness, but edified at their smallest virtues. Above all I know that charity must not remain shut up in the heart, for ‘No man lighteth a candle, and putteth it in a hidden place, nor under a bushel; but upon a candlestick, that they who come in may see the light.’” (St. Thérèse of Lisieux — of the Child Jesus, Virgin and Doctor of the Church, Story of a Soul)
October 1 is the Memorial of St. Thérèse of the Child Jesus, Virgin and Doctor of the Church (1873-1897)
