Motivated by Love

Even small sins can have a corrupting influence on our souls. But we can fundamentally redirect our course by committing ourselves to making good choices every day. The little gestures we can perform don’t require much time or effort, but when done with love, St. Therese of Lisieux assures us that they become great in the eyes of God.
