Eph 6:18Thus says the Lord: Stay alert.And I reply: The world surrounds us, Lord, and would like nothing better than that we should accept its values. Mankind is important, but not more important than God.
St. Rose of Lima, Carlo Dolci
I never liked St. Rose when I was a kid. I always wished her mother had just sat down and gone, “Oh for Pete’s sake, Rosie!”
I feel that way sometimes about St. Therese. oh well.
