The Feast of St. Thérèse of Lisieux

October 1st is the feast of St. Thérèse of Lisieux, the Little Flower. She is a favorite saint of many; many of my sisters are fond of her. I share a quote of hers today.
For me, prayer is a surge of the heart; it is a simple look turned toward heaven, it is a cry of recognition and of love, embracing both trial and joy. “
There is more than one website that claims to be the official website for a woman who would never wanted to be noticed publicly. To learn more about St. Thérèse of Lisieux go to the Catholic Online site which has the biographies of many women and men of the church.

One Comment on “The Feast of St. Thérèse of Lisieux

  1. I have just finished reading The Story of the Soul, finishing funnily enough just as her feast day approached. I would not have known it was without this post. Very intense reading and, for me anyway, needs a second or third read! Coincidentally I am presently reading one of St Francis’ biographies (Jorgenson) and I see his feast day is just 2 days away!!
