Happy Feast of St. Therese!

“Jesus does not demand great actions from us but simply surrender and gratitude…See, then, all that Jesus lays claim to from us; He has no need of our works but only of our love.”

St. Therese is one of my absolute favorite saints - a real friend and intercessor! She can teach us how to remain simple and uncomplicated. She teaches us that all that matters is to LOVE! I pray that she showers you with roses today on this special day!


"Today is the memorial of St. Thérèse of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face, more popularly known as "the Little Flower." Although just an obscure cloistered Carmelite nun, she has had universal appeal since her death in 1897. St. Thérèse is the patroness of all foreign missions and patroness of France. Her feast day was formerly October 3." (from Catholic Culture) See more here.

Jean Marie at Catholic Fire has a wonderful post today which includes personal reflections on St. Therese. Click here to read.
