Lizzy St. Thérèse of Lisieux Blog

Saint Thérèse reminds me to seek holiness in the smallest and most mundane things in life. To find any opportunity to share God’s love and mercy. Her story helped me realize that, yeah, I won’t be perfect on my path towards Christ but we have a loving and merciful Father who is always there to welcome us back with open arms.

I chose her as my patron saint because when looking at other saints I would get so intimidated or discouraged. I felt like I could never do the things they did, but Saint Thérèse made her ordinary life into something extraordinary. It was so humbling to hear her story and learn about her love. I chose her because she showed me that with great love even the smallest of deeds can change the world.
