~ 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).
We spent the afternoon coloring pictures and watching Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus and Miracle of St. Thérèse.
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!
