    The Little-Known St. Thérèse Written by Luis C. Azevedo    Thursday, August 20, 2009 On October 10, 2009, the liturgy of the Church celebrates the memory of Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus and of the Holy Face, “the greatest saint of modern times,” in the words of Pope Saint Pius X. The charm of her “Little Way,” with all its sweetness and mercy, admirably harmonizes with the traits of a genuine warrior, “I would die in a battlefield, arms in hand,” she once stated.1 Her soul had infinite aspirations: she wanted to be a warrior, priest, apostle, doctor of...

    Some time ago I posted an entry on a new painting of the Little Flower by our friend Leonard Porter. Porter is at the forefront of the renewal of classical painting, and his image of Therese has garnered a lot of attention for its combination of Western naturalism and the transcendence of the Eastern tradition. So many people have been asking about the possibility of ordering a print that Leonard has made signed high-quality 11"x14" prints available on eBay by clicking here.

    MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (CNS) -- Maria Meneses has a vision, but in order to see it through, she needs help. The vision: to deliver a rose to all female patients in nursing homes on Mother's Day. Her inspiration came from a desire to pay tribute to her late mother, Eneyda Meneses, who cared for a sick aunt in a nursing home for many years. "I don't have a mom. How else can I celebrate?" said Meneses, a parishioner of St. Patrick's on Miami Beach who made an Emmaus retreat eight years ago. One of the central themes of Emmaus is...

    I was an Anglican priest the summer I met St. Thérèse of Lisieux.I was living in England and had three months free between jobs, so I decided to make a pilgrimage to Jerusalem. I was going to hitchhike and stay in monasteries and religious houses on the way. The first leg of my journey took me across the English Channel to Normandy. After staying with the Benedictines at the monastery of Bec Hellouin, I headed for the town of Lisieux. As a convert from evangelical American religion, I didn’t know much about the little saint of Lisieux, and what I...

    St. Therese and the Little WayMark P. Shea St. Therese and the Little Way Many of us modern people have the sense that sainthood is a far-off and unattainable goal reserved only for heros. We despair of our ordinariness. Yet the greatest saint of modern times, a woman whom Pope Pius called "a word of God" sent to point us the way to Christ was as ordinary as we and made it her life's (and death's) work to say that it is precisely in the ordinary that God comes to us. St. Therese of Lisieux was a person who had...
