Thanksgiving Novena Day Six: Purpose in Life

Words of St. Therese

ā€œI understood that love comprises all vocations ā€“ that love is everything, and because it is eternal, embraces all times and places.  My vocation is love. It is You, O my God, who has given it to me.  In the heart of the Church, my Mother, I shall be love.  Thus I shall be everything and my dream will be realized.ā€

-St. Therese of Lisieux
