Happy Feast Day to the Little Flower
Today for Saint Therese's feast day my family, some friends and I made a pilgrimage to a Shrine dedicated to her. There was a Mass, we walked through the little museum, watched a short video about her and attended a talk by a Carmelite brother.
It's amazing when you stop and think about it - how well known Saint Therese is around the world. The brother stated in his talk, Therese is probably the most popular saint in the world. I can believe it, so many girls are named after her, so many churches... if people only know about one saint, chances are it's Saint Therese. About 400 people came to the mass today - an 11:30 Mass... on a Thursday!
And what really makes you stop and wonder in awe is when you find out that only 30 people came to Saint Therese's funeral.
Happy Feast Day Saint Therese!
