Hello sisters. I went to Mass a few days ago to pray for my friend's husband who has a recurrence of lymphoma. The name of the chapel where the Mass was held is St. Therese of Carmelite Chapel. I picked up a little booklet about St.  Therese, the Little  Flower and read about her life. She was gifted with "great intimacy with God", and said that what matters in life is "not great deeds, but great love."

What struck me was this statement made by St. Therese: "My mission - to make God loved - will begin after death.......I will spend my heaven doing good on earth. I will let fall from Heaven a shower of roses" I suddenly had a vision of St Therese pouring millions of pink roses from Heaven to Earth to touch all of my BC sisters and to give them peace and comfort. Have you been touched by a pink rose today? That is from St. Therese. 

Here is my prayer.....St. Therese, I will fulfill your plea to "be made known everywhere" and I will continue to lead others to Jesus through you. Please pick for me a rose from the heavenly gardens and send it to my sisters as  a message of love. Please intercede for us. Amen.

THis prayer is from me to all of my BC sisters

St Therese of the Little Flower is well loved.  She was my Grandmother, Mom and Aunts patron.  Now that I have breast cancer, I pray often for her intercession.  I believe since she is here on earth, she listens and does her best to help.  I see her in al pink roses.

since the computer will not let me back space. I will take it as a sign to post. St Therese. If my memory serves me correct gave up a rich secular life. .Betty you have been here-Hey..

St Therese bring to all of us with Bc a relief,  an understanding,  a hope, and an acceptance. for those who must face the worst, give them hope of relief of suffering. Let them be received by God, Jesus and Mary without question. May St Gertrude help in the release of any from purgatory. MAY THE IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY INTERVENE TO STOP THIS PALGUE- AMEN

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out shouting "holy crap....what a ride".
