St. Therese of the Child Jesus

" I will spend my Heaven doing good on earth. "

October 1st is the feast day of St. Therese. She's a favorite saint of mine and many people worldwide .
She grew up in a small town in France in a loving and devout Catholic family. She and all her sisters became nuns. She died at a young age but left us a great book ...The Story of a Soul. I read her autobiography and found it simple yet very profound. It's a great book to read if you're suffering in any way. (I read it one time when I was sick with the flu). She shows a beautiful example of how to live for Jesus. I want to read it again.
Also, Happy baptism anniversary to Julia and name day for Rebecca Therese!
