Both celebrations highlight for me the importance of doing little things well. Hilligonde and Elisabeth did the little things involved in teaching each day and caring for the children. Therese offered the little things of her daily convent life and sufferings. For each of them, the little things were their way of showing great love and following in the footsteps of Jesus.
These women give me courage and hope for living a holy life – doing little things is within my reach. My prayer today is that they will intercede for me the grace to see that it really is the little things done well that can make a difference in our world.
What “little thing” has someone done for you lately that has truly touched your life?
