10. Saint Therese of Lisieux and Mercy

In a subtle/ecumenical nod to her feast day, a young lady at NR made these.

What a sweet act of love, from a saint who talked about her vocation of love, which is not just for her (or nuns!).

Here’s a homily for today, if you’re looking for one. Carry on!

One last thing: If you care to listen, John J. Miller has me on his podcast about A Year with the Mystics this week. Podcast here. Book here (23 percent off on Amazon today).
