Celebrating the Feast of Saint Thérèse ~ 2009




~ Our Breakfast ~


French Crepes served with Maple Syrup
(My Grandmother's simple recipe:
12 eggs, 2c flour, 2c milk and 1c water)


~ St. Thérèse of Lisieux ~



Our precious relic of St. Therese at the base of one of our statues.
“By inviting us to venerate the mortal remains of the martyrs and saints, the Church does not forget that, in the end, these are indeed just human bones, but they are bones that belonged to individuals touched by the transcendent power of God. The relics of the saints are traces of that invisible but real presence which sheds light upon the shadows of the world and reveals the Kingdom of Heaven in our midst. They cry out with us and for us ‘Maranatha!’ – ‘Come Lord Jesus!’”

(Pope Benedict XVI, Address to Young People at Cologne, 2005).




We spent the afternoon coloring pictures and watching Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus and Miracle of St. Thérèse.

The girls also pulled out their St. Thérèse costumes and were having so much fun! I wish I would have gotten a picture... It was so cute!

They all insisted on coloring all three pictures!

Twinkle Toes received a surprise package in the mail from her Godparents,
complete with lots of little bouquets of ROSES!

Et Une Rose Candle and Rose Cream Earl Gray Tea









Looking through the pictures in my one of my
very favorite books about St. Thérèse

"Oh, how sweet is the way of love!..Oh, how I wish to always do the will of God with no restraints."

~ St. Thérèse, The Little Flower

  4. Precious, precious! Our day started out okay, and went severely downhill with sour attitudes all around. We rebounded, though, and had a great time celebrating our Little Flower with friends last night. God is good.

    HAVE SO MUCH FUN this weekend! I'll combine all my emails that I would normally send into one that I'll hang on to until Monday!

  8. The first class relic was a gift from one of my Brother-in-Laws!!! =) We do have a couple 3rd class relics as well that hubby touched to her casket when it visited our state -- unfortunately I was on bedrest at the time and couldn't go with him.
