St. Thérèse is a saint for people who
follow, in some form, her Little Way, offering up the little things that
make up one's daily life. I believe we can all make a difference in small
and humble ways, and St. Thérèse is one I can emulate in that.
She is also someone I have turned to in times of trouble. She said, "No
one will ever invoke me without obtaining an answer...If I am wrong, I'll
come back and tell you..."
She also said, "After my death, I will let fall a shower of roses. I will
spend my heaven doing good upon Earth." I have never experienced the
miracle of her roses [edit Aug. 12, 2004: I stand corrected!
I am in the midst of a shower of roses! Some
are here!] nor the scent of them, though many, many others have; but I have experienced her
healing powers. She lived only 24 years here on this earth in humility,
but what a great saint she is now!
