Surely, I’m too little to make a difference. What good can my small act of kindness possibly do in this messed up world?
In the beginning of October, we celebrate a holy man and a holy woman who were quite simple in their earthly lives — and who have become great in Heaven. St. Thérèse of Lisieux is honored on October 1 and St. Francis of Assisi on October 4. So, in this last reflection of September 2022, I’m sharing some memes that express the greatness of their littleness and what they have to teach us about the importance of doing small and simple things with real love.

Although crippled by disease, I'm fully alive in love. I write about the terrible beauty and sacred wonder of life, while living with physical disability and severe dependency. A revert to the Catholic faith through atheism, I'm not afraid to ask life's big questions. I explore what it means to be fully human through my weekly blog and have written a book: It's Good to Be Here, published by Sophia Institute Press.
