St. Therese has played a very pivotal role in my healing, in the raising of my girls, and in many local women's lives. So I give her thanks and ask her not to send real roses our way, but to drop rose petals of specific virtues to each one of us from Heaven! I thank God for her today and for all she does for so many souls.
She found the way to holiness to be simply the offering of every act purely for the love of God. She began to learn this early with her string of Sacrifice Beads. As a group of wonderful women around here have done, I pass on to you a link to see some nicely handmade ones. You can find them here. And lastly here is a link for directions to make them with your children or grandchildren, or for yourself.
