The Little Flower

Statue of St. Thérèse of Lisieux at Holy Rosary Church in West Seattle.

I don’t have a great personal devotion to Thérèse, but she’s one of the saints who helped lead my wife to the Catholic Church, so she’ll always have a special place in my heart. My wife’s favorite Thérèse quote comes from her autobiography, Story of a Soul: “My vocation is love!”

That’s true for all of us.
