    Saint Therese of Lisieux

    St. Therese of Lisieux was the most ordinary person. At age 15 she became a Carmelite sister. She could do absolutely nothing extraordinary.

    But she did little things with great love. She saw that by cleaning toilets, sweeping and mopping floors, doing laundry, dusting, cooking, and doing chores with great love for God, she could please God , bring grace from heaven to earth, and change the world.

    She wrote a book called the little way , and taught the world that God doesn't need us to do great things but do little things with great love.

    A Pope declared that she was the greatest saint of modern times, and she was made doctor of the church. She died at age 24, and to most people it would look like she accomplished nothing.

    She gives hope to people that live the most ordinary lives. I make money washing dishes and going on liquor store runs for a wet house. I plan on being a janitor again. Therese teaches me that being a nobody and doing ordinary labors can lead to sainthood.

    If you believe in spiritual entities, and you feel like you have a lot of ordinary tasks that you attend to, everything you do can be an offering to the heavenly beings that you pray to.

    It is all a sacrifice, an offering, and a redemptive cross to offer your higher power, bringing down Grace from Heaven to Earth.

    The prayers of one person, Moses, saved the entire nation of Israel. Perhaps you feel like a most ordinary person, but your prayers and ordinary labors are what is needed to save a nation from destruction. If Therese can become the greatest saint of modern times doing ordinary labors, so can you.

    Any thoughts?
