A genuine love of prayer is one of hidden, ordinary holiness and regular duties. Extraordinary spiritual fruitfulness is found in ordinary life . . . We take Jesus to the streets, to the work place, to our families and parish by our love. St. Therese tells us, “In my little way, there will be something for all tastes, except those in extraordinary ways.” We become saints by hidden and ordinary virtues. Our stronghold in life is our faith, grounded in Jesus, nourished by prayer and challenged in the service of love.
