St. Therese of Lisieux Comments

Generations of Catholics have admired this young saint, called her the "Little Flower", and found in her short life more inspiration for own lives than in volumes by theologians. Yet Therese died when she was 24, after having lived as cloistered Carmelite for less than ten years. She never went on missions, never founded a religious order, never performed great works. The only book of hers, published after her death, was an brief edited ... Continue Reading

    This was so helpful! I picked her for my confermation saint. And im making mine next year! I pray to her, i used to be a girl who called herself catholic but never practiced the faith or bothered to learn about it but then i entered a catholic school and i was able to learn alot more about God! Im 12 and i will be making my First Holy Communion this year! I also made my first confession last month! :D im so thankful for all of this. Although my dad doesn't know about any of this (he is a Jehovah Witness and is forcing me to try to convert into this religion, for he thinks im non-religious, i will refuse!) PRAY FOR ME ST.THERESA! GOD BLESS ALL :)

    When I was a very young child as a protestant I ran into our local Chapel to escape Bullies and I prayed to the first person I saw there who was St Therese. I did not even know the name at the time. My grandmother was blind and needed a catarac operation and when I arrived in she said have you brought me flowers. My grandmother was also a protestant. I said no but I have been praying to a Lady in our local Chapel that has. She said she could smell the scent of beautiful roses. I did not understand this at the time but I guess she is a saint to all the faiths. God bless her soul forever.

    St. Theresa really reminds me of myself in away, i can be very sensitive and dont like it when i feel far from the lord because i think im not doing enough.. its kind of a personal struggle you have with your self and the more you keep practicing the stronger your faith gets.. its soo weird how my mom has always had St. Theresa at the door of her room for as long as i can remember and its there as i speak and now its hat i read about her i'm inspired i couldnt imagine that our personalities would be soo similar..

    St Therese leaves a true message of how little actions do count. Having been severely abused as a child I never lost faith in God. God helped me through every day. Every day I give a smile or a word of encouragement or open a door for someone, somewhere. Hearing St Therese's story makes me realise how blessed I am to have found that the litle things do count. Thank yoy for these healing words.

    I love you Saint Terese'. Spend your heaven with me (us). Pour down your consolations upon us through your prayers. If it be our heavenly Father's will, be with me (us) always. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end!. Amen.

    I thought this article was very informative. I have heard of St. Teresa of Lisieux since I was a small child and now I read her story. I loved so many of her qualities and only wish that I could imitate her more in my "daily walk".
