Video #6: October 1, 2018: Who is St. Thérèse of Lisieux?

 “The legend is if you pray to St. Thérèse of Lisieux and your prayers are answered, oftentimes roses will appear.” Have you prayed to St. Thérèse?

“She was very humble, longed to be a missionary and dealt with people with such grace. She’s so inspirational.” – Fr. Tony Zimmer
