St. Therese of Lisieux Comments

Generations of Catholics have admired this young saint, called her the "Little Flower", and found in her short life more inspiration for own lives than in volumes by theologians. Yet Therese died when she was 24, after having lived as cloistered Carmelite for less than ten years. She never went on missions, never founded a religious order, never performed great works. The only book of hers, published after her death, was an brief ... Continue Reading

    FOR NATALIA 24/08/11

    Dearest,

    Sometimes the little things are the hardest things to give. Start with 3 little words ..I love you.. and yes I know its hard to say this when you have a situation of confrontation with your parents. Start from the base point of 'I love you`' but when you say this or you do this you make me feel this..... Respect is a revolving door it has to be earned but parents normally have more brownie points Allow guidance to come into your life Can you smell the roses

    She is so loving to God. Her story is one of the best stories I have herd of. I think she is a great saint to pray for because she loved God, our Father with all her heart and might. Her childhood was sad because her mom died. Also she was a very spoiled child. Who would have expected her to actually become a Carmelite at a very young age and to become a saint. She is a great daughter of God.

    Oh my dear, lovely Therese; I read and re-read your story with humility at the breadth and depth of your soul. My faith was desolate and I had not used my musical talents in church for many years. I asked for a few scattered flowers and I got a field full of flowers. For some reason I felt compelled to visit a certain Scottish Episcopal Church to view the Eucharist, and to my utter delight the church badly needed an organist and music director! After years in the desert I am once again doing the things for God that I love. I feel you are listening to me with approval as I play, and I have to thank you for your flowers of wisdom and pleasure.

    St Therese, I am falling behind. Please help me to finish in time and give me the focus, concentration, desire, determination and skills that I need to do so. Please help me to wake up with a clear and focussed brain each day so that I can get through this. Please help me to make the right decisions about everything. Please let my surgery have been successful. Please give everyone the selflessness, caring, compassion, strength and understanding of the situation and please help them to help me to get through this. Amen.
