The Catholic Child and the Saints :: Little Flower

Dear St. Therese, thou wert always good and obedient and always did the Will of God. Now thou art a great saint in heaven with God. Thy loving and tender heart rejoices to send down roses upon earth. O give me the sweet flower of a great love for Jesus! Pray for me that I may have all the graces I need.

I couldn't help smiling when my beautiful little "Rose" walked into our room early this morning wearing her new "Wild Irish Rose" t-shirt (purchased at a fun little Irish store we visited on our road trip) without any reminders from me on whose feast day is celebrated today! 

St. Therese, the Little Flower, pray for us! 


  1. What a sweetheart :-) I love St Therese, she is a favourite saint of mine and I've often experienced her intercession.

  2. How sweet her smiling face is, and that she wore the rose shirt on this day. I love the name of your blog and the Shower of Roses theme.

  4. That is precious! Happy Feast Day (a day late, but I had the tab open all day yesterday and just couldn't get to the comment)
