St. Therese

St. Therese, the Little Flower, was a French Carmelite nun in Lisieux who died of tuberculosis at the young age of 24. She was born in 1873, died in 1897, and was proclaimed to be the 33rd doctor of the Catholic Church in 1997. Her mother died when she was only 4 years old, and she suffered mightily from intestinal problems, headaches, and an undiagnosed illness. It wasn’t until the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to her while she was sick that she got completely well. When she was 15 and too young to enter the Carmelite Monastery, she pleaded her case before Pope Leo XII himself, who told her that if God willed it, she would indeed enter the monastery at such a young age. God did will it, as enter it she did. While there, she wrote and directed plays, did menial household chores, as well as performed duties taking care of the sacristy.

St. Therese is the originator of “The Little Way”, which is the way of those who are not rich and famous, and who want to serve God their loving Father through their littleness and simplicity and love. In other words, St. Therese knew that she was not capable of great sacrifices, or of performing great and mighty works. Rather, she chose to remain as a child in the eyes of God, performing all of her duties with love and obedience, no matter how small and insignificant they were.
