We strive to honor God
"If every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, Spring would lose its loveliness."
St. Thérèse of Lisieux, our Patron Saint.
"One day while praying in a garden, and reflecting on this fact that God has preferences, and gives different graces to different people, and still struggling with this, this young girl suddenly realized that in a garden there are these huge, tremendous, brilliant flowers like roses, like sunflowers, like lilies. But then she noticed subtly that the garden also had daisies, violets, and wildflowers. And that, for the garden to be beautiful, all of these were necessary. She understood from this why God has these preferences, why He gives his graces in different ways to different saints because there are moments that He desires the beauty of the rose or the lily in all its grandeur, and there are moments where He desires a simple daisy or violet with their wonderful fragrances. In that moment, she decided she was content to be the “little flower” in God’s garden of creation."
