ENCOURAGEMENT FROM THE CREATORS OF THE CLOSET CHALLENGE:
LEAH DARROW AND SARAH KROGER
What have I gotten myself into? Day 1 of the closet challenge is a day to begin the purge not just of materialism but of the emotional attachment we have with it. Pay attention to how you feel and give thanks for any grieving you have over your super simple closet.
St. Therese Novena
Dearest Saint Therese of Lisieux, you said that you would spend your time in heaven doing good on earth.
Your trust in God was complete. Pray that He may increase my trust in His goodness and mercy as I ask for the following petitions…
(State your intentions)
Pray for me that I, like you, may have great and innocent confidence in the loving promises of our God. Pray that I may live my life in union with God’s plan for me, and one day see the Face of God whom you loved so deeply.
Saint Therese, you were faithful to God up until the moment of your death. Pray for me that I may be faithful to our loving God. May my life bring peace and love to the world through faithful endurance in love for God our savior.
Loving God, you blessed St. Therese with a capacity for a great love. Help me to believe in your unconditional love for each of your children, especially for me.
I love you, Lord. Help me to love you more!
St. Therese Pray for us!
