'The Little Flower'

Today's the feast of St. Therese of Lisieux. And if you've ever heard me speak, you know where I'm going.

She's popularly known as "The Little Flower" because of her meekness and humility. 

You see, Therese didn't see herself as a Rose or Lilly, Tullip or Orchid. Therese saw herself as the flower no one was to notice, growing quietly and without compromise for the love of God.

She taught "The Little Way" of holiness to those closest to her, a way that's now widely practiced in the Church today.

In fact, Therese once said that even something as small as picking up a pin for love "can convert a soul."

If you want to learn more about her, read her autobiography, Story of a Soul. Her words have changed countless lives, and they can change yours, too.

St. Therese of Lisieux, pray for us!
