Who said sainthood needs to be grand?
Hardly ever more than a little girl,
she became a Doctor of the Catholic Church
by simply believing she could make it to Heaven
when she never really believed in herself.
How much can we still do, then?
I look to her for inspiration, intercede for me,
and all these beliefs held in my heart so long.
Teach me your little way of undying hope
so I may someday find the life I hope to live.
