edit_button

On October 3rd in the Traditional Catholic Calendar, we celebrate the Feast of St. Thérèse of the Child Jesus.  Also known as the Saint of the Little Flower as well as the greatest saint of modern times, St. Thérèse of Lisieux died at a young age in a monastery but lived her short life with great love. She was born on January 2, 1873, to a watchmaker and a lace maker. Her mother, the lacemaker, died when Thérèse was only 4 years old. Both of her parents have been declared Venerable by the Church.

St. Thérèse became a Carmelite nun at age 15. She described her simple path to sanctification and spirituality as "The Little Way". At 7pm on Thursday, September 30, 1897, St. Thérèse died of tuberculosis.

Prayer for Her Intercession:

Dear Little Flower of Lisieux, how wonderful was the short life you led. Though cloistered, you went far and wide through fervent prayers and great sufferings. You obtained from God untold helps and graces for his evangelists. Help all missionaries in their work and teach all of us to spread Christianity in our own neighborhoods and family circles. Amen.

O Little Flower of Jesus, ever consoling troubled souls with heavenly graces, in your unfailing intercession I place my trust. From the Heart of Our Blessed Savior petition these blessing of which I stand in greatest need (mention here). Shower upon me your promised roses of virtue and grace, dear Saint Therese, so that swiftly advancing in sanctity and in perfect love of neighbor, I may someday receive the crown of eternal life. Amen.

O Lord, Who has said: Unless you become as little children you shall not enter into the Kingdom of heaven: grant unto us, we beseech Thee, so to follow in humility and simplicity of heart the footsteps of Saint Teresa, the Virgin, that we may obtain everlasting rewards: Who livest and reignest.
