What is a defining characteristic of a Christian? The citizens of the Roman Empire had already noticed it by the early third century AD when they exclaimed about Christians, “See how they love each other!” Christ’s great commandment is that we love one another as He has loved us. Inasmuch as we live that out, we are Christians in name and in fact. But we encounter an obstacle: our own weakness and sinfulness. Luckily, God has given us the saints, friends who can guide us along the narrow path that leads to eternal life. St. Therese of Lisieux is such a friend. St. Therese offers us a Little Way of Love which we can follow no matter where we are in our spiritual journey. In this Retreat Guide, we will explore the Little Way in the following stages:

  • In the First Meditation, we will reflect on the background of St. Thérèse’s Little Way and how it fits in with our call to holiness, which means greatness in love.
  • In the Second Meditation, we will delve into Christ’s great commandment to love one another as he has loved us.
  • In the Conference, we will unite the two meditations by looking at how St. Thérèse lived that great commandment in her own life, and we will draw out some practical conclusions.

This Retreat Guide Booklet includes the meditations, conference, and reflection questions, along with space for taking notes and journaling. We hope it helps to further open your heart to Christ.
