St. Therese, affectionately called "The Little Flower" , is one of the most popular of the modern saints. Countless stories exist of the faithful receiving a rose unexpectedly to signal their prayer to St. Therese will be answered. She promised during her life that she would spend her heaven doing good upon earth, and that she would let fall a shower of roses from heaven, meaning miracles and favors from God. As a Carmelite nun in France, she died at only 24 years of age. She had an accomplished life nonetheless. She sought during her life to find the quickest way to God. What she discovered was published in her book, Story of a Soul. She believed that by offering little sacrifices to God, as well as humility, love and daily prayer, one could quickly increase in holiness. She thought that anyone who loved God could become holy.
Because of her great insight, she was canonized a saint only 28 years after her death. In 1997, St. Pope John Paul II named her Doctor of the Church. St. Therese is one of only 33 others in the history of the church to be given this honor.

Saint Therese, the Little Flower, you pleased Our Lord through your "little way"-not achieving great things but doing little things with great love. You taught us to trust in God's love and do our best to love our fellow man. Saint Therese, you said that you would spend your time in haven doing good on earth. Please ask God to grant me the favor I ask. Pray for me that I might love God above all things, love my brothers and sisters in Christ, and remain God's faithful servant in life and death. I ask this through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
