St. Therese of Lisieux, The Little Flower

I didn't pick St. Therese for Spirit of the Month. She nominated herself. Before I made the selection for November she made her presence known. On Halloween I was celebrating in Hoboken when I found a red rose at my feet on the street. Shortly afterwards we were in Amsterdam and I found a 3-d portrait of her in a silver glitter frame in an arty store. Finally, we were strolling around the city and saw the above statue in an apartment window. No other Spirit has made its wishes so clear.

This link: Catholic-forum.com/saints/saintt02.htm will tell you all you want to know about the Little Flower. I hope that soon you are surrounded by roses, all your wishes granted.
