I am in Texas now with my parents. I spent a busy day here. One of my high lights was giving my mom a foot massage as she rested. It's the little things that make a difference. I prayed to St. Therese of Lisieux for her intercession.
Therese of Lisieux is one of the patron saints of the missions, not because she ever went anywhere, but because of her special love of the missions, and the prayers and letters she gave in support of missionaries. This is reminder to all of us who feel we can do nothing, that it is the little things that keep God's kingdom growing.
