Beloved Saint Lived in Anonymity Nov 3, 2006
This latest entry in the "99 Words to Live By" series is, like its predecessors, filled with inspiring words for daily reflection. The value-added colorful cover and ribbon marker make this an ideal gift. Introducing the quotations, Editor Marc Foley, O.C.D., presents a brief biography of Thérèse, who was born in 1873, lived and died in obscurity, yet "is one of the most well-known and beloved saints of our age." She approached God in the manner of an innocent child, prized simplicity, and considered love a choice rather than a feeling. Those who follow her path will be heartened by her struggles to become more attentive in prayer and overcome aggravations arising from community life.
She admitted, with shame, that she had such meager success at meditating on the mysteries of the rosary she became desolate. However, she recovered somewhat with the realization that "the Queen of heaven, since she is my Mother, must see my good will and she is satisfied with it." Thérèse tried to extend the same kind of patience she attributed to Mary to the other sisters. "A sister who is suffering from migraine or is troubled internally," she said, "does more when she does half of what is required of her than another who does it all but is sound in mind and body." Two other favorite quotations Foley offers to help us deal with our shortcomings: "Charity consists in bearing with those who are unbearable" and "... God allows some souls to remain imperfect because it would be to their spiritual detriment to believe they are virtuous."
