St. Therese's Feast Day

Happy feast of St. Therese of Lisieux!!!

I am proud to call this amazingly wonderful saint my confirmation saint, as well as one of my dearest friends. She has been my favorite saint for as long as I can remember, ever since I was a little girl. I have always admired and been devoted to her, and the more I learn about her and pray to her, the more I love her.

Since St. Therese is my patron saint (hence my name here on the internet, Stephanie Therese), naturally I'm quite excited today! I went all-out wearing flowery clothes + accessories in honor of the Little Flower, including a floral print dress, a flower necklace, flower earrings, and a hair accessory with roses on it. I'm also, of course, wearing my St. Therese medal, and my saint bracelet which includes an image of her.

I'm also making use of my St. Therese mug for today's tea consumption.

So, as you can tell, I'm just a little bit happy about St. Therese's feast day and just a little bit eager to celebrate it. ;) I'll get to celebrate it even more later today, when I go to Mass (which I have the honor of lectoring at today), go to a holy hour with my household (of which St. Therese is a patron saint!), and go to a St. Therese party here at school where I'll have an opportunity to venerate a first-class relic of her!

Again, only a little bit excited. ;) 

Happy feast of St. Therese again, friends! I hope you enjoy this beautiful day!

I'll end with one of my favorite St. Therese quotes:

"See, if we place all our confidence in the good God, and constantly put forth our best efforts, while hoping everything from His Mercy, we too shall receive the reward of the greatest saints."

St. Therese, pray for us!
