the little way magazine is published by St. Therese Institute twice per year (usualy). Its focus and purpose is to spread the spirituality of St. Thérèse of Lisieux and her "little way" as lived by the community of students embarking on St. Therese Institute's Faith Formation Program, as well as keep you informed of what has and is happening at St. Therese Institute.
Go deeper into the Sunday Gospel, and make "keeping holy the Sabbath" a more important part of your life and a practice in your family, household or community.
In the Jewish tradition, the new day begins at sundown (you'll see this echoed through into the Catholic tradition of having a Sunday Mass on the Saturday evening, for example). Our Lord's Day celebration begins at Saturday's supper with a short time of prayer, a reading of and reflection on the coming Sunday's Gospel reading, and then grace. After supper, a prayer of thanksgiving is said. The reflection on the Gospel is given either a student or one of our formation team. To bookend the Lord's Day, another short time of prayer precedes the Sunday supper grace, and again a prayer of thanksgiving follows supper.
Our director of Assistant Director of Formation, Nicholas Pierlot, explains more in the above video.
