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.

    A comment or two regarding receiving a form of communication from St Therese(The little Flower). About 15 years back I had been driving to work one cold and damp morning thinking about a family member who had a medical problem and was noticable when looking at that family member.

    Moments later I was about to enter the intersection on a fresh green light when it suddenly changed to red appearing to skip the amber light. My car with all windows closed this cold damp morning filled with the rich aroma of Roses, and my attention at that time was drawn to face my left drivers window and noticed where I suddenly came to a fast stop, stood an old Catholic church which I had passed many times. When I started to drive drive away after the light turned green the rich smell of roses then faded. Within a week or so my family member who had a medical problem showed the problem no more.

    A couple of weeks later I mentioned to my wife what appeared to be a dream of a slanted floor down to the pulpit so when we attended for the first time at that church and to both our suprise it did have a flloor that decened down to mentioned pulpIt area. from outside the foundation is straight across but was inside as my dream had shown

    On that day we became acquainted to the statue of St. Theresa who allowed us to find her there and one might assume that may be the reason both matters spoken about did happen. From that day forth we continue have her in our steps of life
