Thérèse of Lieseux ~ Feast Day

There were ways to You she taught us,
Ways we never knew about or thought possible:
Like being a simple ball of no value, she said,
that You "could play with,
one You could throw on the ground
toss about, pierce, leave in a corner
or press to Your heart
just as it might please You".

Yes, Theresa was a teacher unbewares. We glean much understanding from her writings.
