“God, Be Yourself My Sanctity” (Part 1)
Frances Harry, OCDS, discusses, “God, Be Yourself My Sanctity," a phrase used by St. Therese of Lisieux in her famous prayer, “The Act of Oblation to Merciful Love,” found in her book, “Story of a Soul.” What does St. Therese really mean in this part of her prayer? Is it possible? And is it possible for us? Frances Harry, OCDS, helps us work through these questions and more. She was particularly delighted when a kindred spirit decided to write a book about this. It is called: “Something New with Saint Therese: Her Eucharistic Miracle” by Suzie Andres, OCDS. This highly recommended book will really help you understand what St. Therese meant in this part of her prayer. Dive in! You’ll be glad you did. There are spiritual challenges here that will help each of us to grow in prayer and in union with God.
