Feast of St. Thérèse of Lisieux

"I know of one means only by which to attain to perfection: LOVE. Let us love, since our heart is made for nothing else. Sometimes I seek another word to express Love, but in this land of exile the word which begins and ends (St. Augustine) is quite incapable of rendering the vibrations of the soul; we must then adhere to this simple and only word: TO LOVE."
- St. Thérèse

In honor of her as one of my favorite Saints, I will post a number of resources on St. Thérèse for anyone interested. See the 'Continue reading here' link below.To learn about her life in detail see Here. To hear more great words of wisdom on her from Archbishop Fulton Sheen, here is Part 1, and Part 2. To read a wonderful blog post on her devotion to the Merciful Love of Jesus, go Here. Check out the video below as well. :-).

"It does not require much time to make a saint,
it requires, only, much love."

 -Archbishop Fulton Sheen on St. Thérèse of Lisieux
