Therese's Little Way

Manuel Hurtado Solis just presented Therese of Lisieux's autobiography. What struck me very much was what Manuel said towards the end: that Therese found her way to holiness precisely because of her frailty, her weakness, and that she showed this way to us: that we need not worry about who is ahead of us and how, we will find our way to God precisely through that which seems an obstacle and a weakness.

The other little thing was the echo with Don Bosco: to be cheerful. "Here sanctity consists in being cheerful." No other way, I suppose, for someone totally surrendered to God.
