Wordle #181: St. Therese de Lisieux

Wordle #181



Peering into the lives of the saints 
provides a connected and vital chain to our risen Lord.  
With that connection, 
my speech takes on a new importance 
in radiating no harm to others.  
For which of us broken humans 
needs a word (such as name-calling) or action 
that strips away any divinity that is left in us?  
Signs of help for us can be found in a poem 
from the likes of St. Therese de Lisieux.   
So let’s raise our goblets to St. Therese 
(who, even as she lay on the sheets of her bed) 
gave us a sense that we too can strive for holiness 
in ‘little ways’ as she did.



As my faithful readers can see, 
I've been drawn back to this place.
I won't be writing here on a daily basis,
but St. Therese and Mother Mary 
are whispering in my ear...

Faith in a Bottle's Last Post

Dear Readers,
I  will no longer be posting here.  
That does not mean that I won't write posts of a spiritual nature.  
I just cannot manage to give my full attention 
to this blog and Nonnie's Observations.
So, as of today, you will find me solely (and soulfully)
at Nonnie's Observations.
I am hoping that you will follow me there.
Lovingly,
Nonnie



Mondays with Mary: The Magnificat

The Magnificat
also known as
Canticle of Mary

My soul proclaims the greatness of the lord, 
my spirit rejoices in God my Savior 
for He has looked with favor on His lowly servant. 
From this day all generations will call me blessed: 
the Almighty has done great things for me, and holy is His name.
He has mercy on those who fear Him in every generation.
He has shown the strength of His arm, 
He has scattered the proud in their conceit.
He has cast down the mighty from their thrones, 
and has lifted up the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things, 
and the rich He has sent away empty.
He has come to the help of His servant Israel 
for He has remembered His promise of mercy,  
the promise He made to our fathers, 
to Abraham and his children for ever.

Shadow Shot Sunday 2: At St. Francis

 I've stopped before the door,
delighting in the play of light and shadow,
I take my shot for posterity;
 then in I go to experience 
the delight of being fed by my Lord and Savior.
