THE BEAUTIFUL STORY BEHIND THE SMALL DAILY FLOWER ON THE ALTAR…


THE BEAUTIFUL STORY BEHIND THE
SMALL DAILY FLOWER ON THE ALTAR…

For several months, every morning, I would find a small fresh flower on the altar of our school chapel. They would come in different colors, oftentimes yellow, but always small ones. I didn’t know who was placing it there until today…

Having arrived early in the morning and as a custom I learned from St. Josemaria, I entered the oratory to greet Our Lord in the tabernacle and I saw a kindergarten girl, perhaps 5 years of age, seated on the first bench, with her legs dangling in the air, and talking to Our Lord. I then went to the chaplain’s office to put on my cassock and returned to the oratory and saw this…a tiny yellow flower on the altar! My heart rejoiced for Our Lord with this small detail done out of great love for Jesus…and by a 5 yr-old girl!

Such great love and affection we could learn from this little girl who loves Jesus! May we also offer daily small “flowers” of our prayers, sacrifices and interior struggle to Our Lord and Our Lady. May we live this spiritual childhood in our daily dealings with Our Lord and Our Lady, for that is what we are, little children in front of God and of our mother in heaven. “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven (Mt 18:3).”
