Ave Maria!

Fr. Terrance explains how St Therese's Little Way involves the Love of God. He covers:

God is merciful love
Love is at the center of her little way
Loving Heart, Thirsting for God
Faith in God’s merciful love
Love was her driving force & goal
Aim at pleasing Jesus
transports of love
He’s hidden me entirely under His wings
1. Therese’s Exclusive Love
2. Therese’s Disinterested Love

Last two points are only in the notes:
3. Therese’s Generous Love
4. Her Love was tender & thoughtful

This is the last 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/
