Matthew 13 12 13

“To those who listen to my teaching, more understanding will be given, and they will have an abundance of knowledge. But for those who are not listening, even what little understanding they have will be taken away from them. 13 That is why I use these parables…”

Matthew 13:12,13


Mark 4 30 32

“What shall we say the kingdom of God is like, or what parable shall we use to describe it? 31It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest of all seeds on earth. 32Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants, with such big branches that the birds can perch in its shade.”

Th r se de lisieux

“I know well, Jesus, that love can only be repaid by love; what I’ve always looked for and have found at last is some way of satisfying my feelings by returning love for Your love . . . But this love of mine, how to show it? Love needs to be proved by action. Well, even a little child can scatter flowers, to scent the throne-room with their fragrance;

Thérèse de Lisieux


Th r se de lisieux1

…even what I’ve always looked for and have found at last is some way of satisfying my feelings by returning love for Your love . . . But this love of mine, how to show it? Love needs to be proved by action. Well, even a little child can scatter flowers, to scent the throne-room with their fragrance; a little child can sing, in its shrill treble, the great canticle of love. That shall be my life, to scatter flowers--to miss no single opportunity of making some small sacrifice, here by a smiling look, there by a kindly word, always doing the tiniest things right, and doing it for love.”

from The Little Way

Thérèse de Lisieux
