Therese experienced extraordinary breakthroughs in what is possible in a human being's relationship with God and with other humans. Since her death, she has fascinated countless people. Her memoir, "Story of a Soul," became the religious bestseller of the 20th century. Countless miracles have been attributed to her intercession. She was canonized in 1925 and, in 1997, named a Doctor of the Church. She is often called the "Little Flower.""My mission: to make God loved, will begin after my death. I will spend my heaven doing good on earth. I will send a shower of roses."
"Jesus, help me to simplify my life by learning what you want me to be - and becoming that person."
"Let us see life as it really is... It is a moment between two eternities..."
"To Call God my Father and to Know myself His Child, that is Heaven to me ..."
St. Therese, pray for us, that we may be
simple, humble, and love Christ with a child-like faith.
