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

    I was sent here by a friend. She don't even realize what she did, she was trying to explain something to me about her. Anyway, i am Caine, and i don't know where to begin. I was raised baptist for a while, then my mother remarried and he was catholic, so i went to cathoiic church. I've lost my faith, because of my life, it's just something i can't fathom. I've prayed many times growing up, never gotten an answer or felt him. How does one find faith again when they've lost it through a life filled with torment ?

    Hi Mercy (RE: mercy October 3rd, 2010 11:21 pm),

    A few years ago I heard what I thought to be a name ("Rose Lydell" - I knew how it should be spelled for some reason). I don't take the last name so seriously, though. Very recently, I have been seeing repetitions and variations of the name "Rose" a lot. For example, I was on ChristianMingle.com & while I was clicking through all of the people online, it seemed that every page had a Rose in their "handle." I was like, what is going on?? A Catholic friend of mine (I'm Anglican, but was raise RC), suggested that St. Therese or St Rose of Lima might be interceding for me. I have no reservations about the intercessions of the saints since I have experienced different saints (sometimes not necessarily canonized) "show up" repetitiously within days.

    Thank you St Jude for hearing my prayers. I have turned against the Catholic Church for thirty seven years and now have begun to pray again. I know I am forgiven by my Lord.

    I have recently returned to the Catholic faith after a 40 year sabbatical. It has been the best thing that God has done for me. I grew up in Detroit, MI. and spent 12 years attending St. Theresa of the Little Child of Jesus or (The Shrine of the Little Flower) Catholic school and church which is now a historical landmark made famous by Father Charles Coughlin who had a radio broadcast from 1916-1926, speaking about religion and Politics. I was enrolled in the Seminary to study for Priesthood but fell away thru worldly pursuits.
    I fell 30 feet hitting a granite boulder cracking my skull and other parts of my body, and have been in Chronic Pain for 18years. God found St Therese again as a patron saint of Pain. I Pray everyday for Souls in Purgatory and for relief fom my own pain. Also started Morning Mass and HolyCommunion and have not missed a day since rejoining. THANK YOU JESUS, WHO LOVES US ALL.

    St. Therese of "little flower".. Thank you for giving me a sign for hope.. I felt her presence when I was reviewing for the NLE.. i saw a rose in my room.. and when I turn my book in the last page, there was a novena for St. Therese.. On the next day, I saw her picture on the church. I know it is not an accident. I know God wanted me to feel secure.

    And by this time I keep fighting for the nursing license.
    December 19 and 20 is the date of my board examinations.. Please sisters and brothers pray for me.. Thanks..

    God Bless..

    I think you should write about St. Monica, St. Anne, and St. Francis.

    I love St. Terese's "little way" to sainthood because it inspires me to keep on doing everything even if it feels insignificant.

    I am currently writing an essay for my Sunday School. I need to choose 5 Saints, including my Saint Name, Theresa. Does anyone have any ideas on which Saints I should write about? Thanks :)
