Feast of St. Thérèse of LisieuxOctober 1st, 2014
To prove his point here Jesus takes a little child as the model of littleness and greatness. Today is the Feast of Thérèse of Lisieux who took these words of Jesus to heart and spent her life in childish simplicity, doing small things with great love. She showed us the little Way, which is available to us all. She died at the Carmel in Lisieux on 30th September 1897. She was declared a doctor of the Church by Pope John Paul II in 1997. She is Patron of missions, florists, aviators and France.
