In His Hand My Vocation Is Love

Meditations on St Therese'
"Story Of A Soul"

We must strive
to do what little we can
with what little we have
in the place we are now
with the greatest love possible.

This series of meditations draws on the heart of the doctrine of The Little Way of St Thérèse , as expressed in her letter to Sister Marie of the Sacred Heart on September 13, 1896. This letter is published in Story of a Soul as Manuscript B. In this letter, her wisdom is woven as a fresh cloth from a master weaver's loom. Following the bold confidence she teaches, I have attempted to follow a few threads through this cloth, in expressing her wisdom by theme. Only some of the many themes are expressed here, and it is my hope that the most important aspects of The Little Way have been made manifest.
