Saint Therese Had a Puppy Named Tom
One day Papa brought Little Therese a big surprise! Hidden in a box was her own little puppy, whining to come out and play. Out jumped Tom, a little white cocker spaniel. Therese thanked her father with a delighted hug.
After that Tom went with them on their afternoon walks. He would lie sadly outside the church and wait while they prayed. He would happily wag his little tail when they came out.
Once the clean white puppy jumped into a pond and then rolled in the dusty road.
Papa said, "See, that reminds us of a spotless, white soul which becomes stained by sin."
Little Therese always remembered that lesson. She always kept her soul white for Jesus.
