Sunday Thoughts: St. Therese of Lisieux

There is in the Community a Sister who has the faculty of displeasing me and everything, and her ways, her words, her character, everything seems very disagreeable to me. And still, she is a holy religious who must be very pleasing to God. Not wishing to give into the natural antipathy I was experiencing I told myself that charity does not consist in feelings but in works; then I set myself to doing for this Sister what I would do for the person I loved the most.
