Feast of St. Therese of the Child Jesus and of the Holy Face

“On the day of her religious profession she prayed that no soul be damned today. She saw herself as a Bride of Christ and a Mother of Souls. Indeed she had entered Carmel to save souls and to pray for priests. Though she died at only twenty-four, her spiritual legacy continues to enlighten the Church.”  Read the rest of the homily for today’s Feast of St. Therese of Lisieux on the Priest Blog at Catholic Insight.
