This weekend, May 19, 2013, the Roman Catholic Church will celebrate its birthday, the coming of the Holy Spirit. The life of St. Therese exemplifies her journey of faith with the Holy Spirit.Receiving the gifts of simplicity, trust and poverty of spirit, she pursued Christ with perseverance. Each time I anointed a terminal patient at a hospice, I presented a picture of St. Therese which would provide spiritual comfort. I firmly believe in this Holy Sacrament of Anointing as well as the Holy Sacrament of Presence of the Holy Spirit with simplicity and trust.
115 years ago today yet she seems so close to me

Therese will continue to shower her roses on all her friends until the end of time.Let her be for all of us ,through her Little Way, a sure signpost to the Heart of Christ.
Saint Therese, thank you so much for all that you have done for us--your faithful followers. O gentle saint, thank you for calming us in times of uncertainty and dispair. Your presence in our loves encourages us to continue with hope and faith in Our Lord Jesus. O Therese, you stated you will come down from heaven, and we thank you for keeping your promise.
We thank your sister Pauline for giving us this statement, which has now become our prayer: "We love having our Therese with us, for then we feel no harm can touch us." Saint Therese of the Child Jesus of the Holy Face, God bless you and your holy family. Amen.
Ste Therese I wish to thank you . I asked you for a rose on my birthday and I received it. I spent a divine evening at my praise & worship charismatic session and spent a wonderful evening with my boyfriend.Ste Therese I pray and trust that you will shower plenty on roses on my boyfriend and me , on our relationship so that we have a beautiful future together for the Glory of our Lord.Thank you Ste Therese
Therese,Your 'little way'to the Heart of JesusCounsels us to accept spiritual poverty;To have confidence in Our eternal Father;And commit ourselves to the practice of love.
A distillation of the teachingsOf John of The CrossAnd Teresa of Avila;A spirituality which is the fruitOf the Gospels.
Yes, I thank YouFor "it is love alone that counts".
The Final Promise
(In memory of Fr. Norbet)
Beneath the April sunDaffodils and early bluebellsQuivered in the MonasteryGrounds…
In oratorical silenceCantoring at vespersIn consort with my fraternityLed by Father Norbet.
As I read the second readingOf The MassThe Spirit of ChristArose in my heart…
Like a brideI made my promise:A mystical covenantWith a personWhose presence was obvious.
I entered CarmelPraising GodFor calling meTo the Mount of LoveIn the footsteps of TeresaAnd John.
Now in mantled brownI pursue the wounded StagUpon the hillWith the help of my friendsElizabeth and Therese
"What must pass in the Heart of the good God when we return to Him?...more swiftly will He forget all our iniquities, never again to remember then...He will love us still better than before our fault"
St Therese of Lisieux
I am quite amazed at all there is too be found on this web-site.If you need further help in translation from French to English,please let me know.
The simple,joyful life of St. Therese and her family and Sisters in religious life has much to teach us in the 21st century.
May many people come to know the love of Jesus as the Little Flower did!
Great site, thanks!
Our journey of faith begins and ends with one desire, a solemn desire: to love and be loved. Where else is this solemn desire expressed in one's heart, mind, soul, then within the celebration of the Holy Eucharist wherein we become a member of Christ's divine nature and He of our human nature. It is then when the priest prays: "By the mystery of this water and wine may we come to share in the divinity of Christ who humbled Himself to share in our humanity."
peço saude e proteção pra mim e minha filha drielle moraes,peço pelos nossos sonhos e desejos,peço pelas nossas vidas material sentimental.espiritual e fisica,agradeço as benções alcançadas,,peço pela minha mãe,minha avó,meu ex marido,peço pelos meus amigos e meus inimigos ,amém
Thank you very much for your sweet message. I am happy that St. Therese and this Web site are a source of inspiration to you.
Thank you for helping our sweet Ste Therese teach us all the Little Way and help us become closer and more aware of the Martin family.
The most wonderful site to read and enjoy each day. May we all pray for the Blessed Martins for a second Miracle, and for our Blessed Pope John Paul II.
Ste. Therese of Lisieux said, ‘I will spend my eternity showering roses upon the earth,’ and Blessed John Paul II, and The Blessed Martins I feel are also doing this...
Blessings to you Maureen and all whom visit here.
I chose St Therese as my Confirmation Saint, after praying for her intercession a couple of years ago I was introduced to the Catholic Faith in a fuller way and healed of anxiety and fear. St Therese pray for us all. AMEN
Our Little Flower
Our little flower, Therese,Shows us The way to GodFor He dwells Within her heart.So walk with her ‘Her little way’For it is based Upon love -Whose source is Our Father-Whose SpiritThrough our Mother’s ‘Yes’Ensured the birth Of Our Saviour.
The Brown Scapular
Wearing the ScapularIs honouring JesusAnd His MotherNot the sourceOf an easy wayTo their home
If wearingThe ScapularAnd not FollowingOur SaviourHis landIs closed to us
As wearersWe imitateThe virtuesOf our MotherFor MaryShared the pathOf Her SonAnd the ScapularImplies that reality
