I'm sure St. Therese has touched your life - and those you love. She has been a great surprise and gift in my life. As Prior General of the Carmelites, I've been so impressed by the devotion of her many friends. It has touched my heart. We always want to share her spirituality. Many Popes have declared her "the greatest Saint of modern times." And we know how deeply our beloved Pope Francis is devoted to her, as a great model to live the Gospel.
The Society of the Little Flower always wants to help her friends. I am trying to do this by offering you a St. Therese Necklace and Novena Prayer Booklet on the Spirituality of St. Therese. Necklaces connect and embrace our head and heart - and point to our centre, where God dwells.
St. Therese can be so engaging and insightful! God speaks and reveals in her.
St. Therese lived a real life and presents a very practical and attainable spiritual journey. She wants us to know and accept that God loves and embraces us, from deep within.
She is still speaking today.
Please help the Carmelites continue her mission of doing good on earth - and showering God's people with the message of God's mercy and love in very concrete ways. Your offerings help our growing number of Carmelite seminarians through the world to serve the Church as faithful men of the Gospel. You also support the ministries of the Carmelites to the poor, alienated and less fortunate in over 50 countries throughout the world. We need your help to go to the ends of earth, as St. Therese desired. I ask you to be as generous as she was, and is!
You can help make a difference in people's lives.
I hope this St. Therese Necklace and these Novena Prayers on her simple and profound way help you to absorb her spirit - and pray more about the real issues of our human lives and well as make us one with God's children throughout the world. They really are her embracing and whispering in us.
Most Rev. Fernando Millan Romeral, O. Carm.
