St. Therese of the Child Jesus

Today is the Feast day of St. Therese

Saint Therese was born at Alençon in France in 1873. While still a young girl, she entered the Carmelite Monastery at Lisieux. There she lived a life of humility, evangelical simplicity and trust in God. By word and example she taught these virtues to the novices of the community. Offering her life for the salvation of souls and the growth of the Church, she died September 30, 1897.

 

St. Therese, pray for us.
