St. Therese of Lisieux

Among other things, he asked for St. Therese’s “interception” 🙂 He wanted to take the book with him to school so that he could share the prayer with his class, and I’m secretly hoping that he didn’t correct himself – I think that his teachers, one of them a football coach, would get a good chuckle.

I always think of Kellie’s sweet baby Therese Joy on October 1st, and this year I even remembered to pray the St. Therese novena because of this great tool. Here is a link to a nice bio of St. Therese, and below is one of my favorite quotes from one of her letters – happy Feast Day, St. Therese!
