~ St. Thérèse of Lisieux ~
Our precious relic of St. Therese at the base of one of our statues.
“By inviting us to venerate the mortal remains of the martyrs and saints, the Church does not forget that, in the end, these are indeed just human bones, but they are bones that belonged to individuals touched by the transcendent power of God. The relics of the saints are traces of that invisible but real presence which sheds light upon the shadows of the world and reveals the Kingdom of Heaven in our midst. They cry out with us and for us ‘Maranatha!’ – ‘Come Lord Jesus!’”
(Pope Benedict XVI, Address to Young People at Cologne, 2005).
The girls also pulled out their St. Thérèse costumes and were having so much fun! I wish I would have gotten a picture… It was so cute!

“Oh, how sweet is the way of love!..Oh, how I wish to always do the will of God with no restraints.”
~ St. Thérèse, The Little Flower
Prayer of Mothers
Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.
