The Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm celebrated the Feast of Saint Therese of the Child Jesus in a special Carmelite liturgy offered by Very Reverend Mario Esposito, O.Carm.  After Mass, each Sister was invited to venerate the Saint's relic and to receive a blessed rose in her honor. At the prompting of Mother Agnes of Jesus, Saint Therese's oldest sister and Prioress of Lisieux Carmel at the time of St. Therese's death, the future Saint described her mission as "sending down a shower of roses" to those who ask for her help.

Saint Therese of the Child Jesus and of the Holy Face, pray for us!
