In living The Little Way by which she sought to attain eternal life with Christ, St. Therese performed small acts, unbeknownst to others, in order to give glory to God alone. She taught that we are to do ordinary things with extraordinary love. What began as a project for Mother Superior became a book publish after her death entitled “Story of a Soul”, which is still popular spiritual reading today.
She wrote “I will let fall from heaven a shower of roses” leading to the name the Little Flower. St. Therese’s words illustrate the symbol by which she shares with us her intercession and inspiration even from heaven.
