Feast of St. Therese of the Child Jesus
Our "Little Therese" - as she would have us call her - is held very dear even today because she, in imitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mt. Carmel, is very pleasing to God: God's great pleasure is shining on her and radiating brightly in her who had not refused her Little Jesus anything and gave Him the little she was only capable of and that very generously, without reserve and murmur. This is the crown of that her promised "good" work of spending heaven with the shower of graces she will let fall from the hands of her Immaculate Mother of Carmel - souls who would love God as she has loved Him and made Him much loved.
A blessed Feast to everyone!
