Saint Theresa, Little Flower of Jesus
Therese Martin was the last of nine children
At the age of 14, on Christmas Eve in 1886, Therese had a conversion
were turned toward love, instead of keeping herself happy.
Through sickness and dark nights of doubt and fear,
The world came to know Therese
She described her life as a "little way of spiritual childhood."
She loved flowers and saw herself as the "little flower of Jesus,"

Because of this beautiful analogy,
the title "little flower" remained with St. Therese.
Her inspiration and powerful presence from heaven
Countless millions have been touched by her intercession
Blessed Louis and Zelie Martin
On October 19, 2008, the parents of Saint Theresa,
Saint Theresa, the Little Flower,
please pick for me
a rose from the Heavenly Garden
and send it to me with a message of Love.
Ask God to grant me
the favor I thee implore
and tell Him I will love Him
each day more and more.
