Ave Maria!

Fr. Terrance explains how St Therese's Little Way involves the Love of Neighbor. He starts with how love is at the center of the Little Way, and includes:

Self-denial and a spirit of faith
1. Focusing on virtues, not on defects
2. Not making excuses
3. Not quick to judge
4. Avoiding quarrels
5. Not a criticizer
6. A spirit of service
7. Seeking out the marginalized
Suffering from others
Was charity easy for her?
During her illness
Perfect charity
Her zeal for souls

This is the third talk of four from his retreat on the Little Way of St Therese that focuses on her simplicity, love of neighbor, and love of God. It took place in August 2021 at the Mother of the Redeemer Retreat Center in Bloomington, IN: https://maryschildren.com/
