"I will spend my Heaven doing good on earth . . .
I will let fall a shower of roses . . .
I will come down!" - St. Therese of the Child Jesus of the Holy Face
The Little Flower
Little Flower, in this hour, show your power!
Angel of God, my guardian dear,
To whom God's love commits me here,
Ever this day be at my side,
To light, to guard, to rule, and guide!

Because St. Therese's feast falls hidden behind the Sunday this year, we will continue celebrating through guardian angel day tomorrow and into her feast on the old calendar, October 3!
Which means that any excuse at all will serve us to serve her - the mistress of roses and mistress of our hearts. She is so serious, and at the same time so very funny, about Coming Down. We have stories, but we can't tell them now or we'll be late for Sunday Mass!
Stay tuned because we will be posting more roses - real roses that are crowding my house and bringing great joy on their way to being showered by Therese onto her next victims (of love)!!!
I also hope to be posting a recording of a talk I'm giving tonight on the Dumb Ox (our dear big brother St. Thomas) and the Little Flower (his little sister Therese) - please say a prayer like, "Holy Spirit, inspire Suzie and her listeners when she speaks for St. Therese!" - There! That was easy! Thank you so much!
Until we meet again, may she shower you too with roses and may her Little Way be sweet and full of sunshine for you and all your dear ones.
Draw me, we will run!
