Collection: St. Thérèse of Lisieux Rosaries

St. Thérèse of Lisieux “The Little Flower” – Her Beautiful “Little Way” for Christ. 

Known as "The Little Flower" and "Therese of the Child Jesus and The Holy Face"

The Little Flower:

St. Therese loved nature, she saw herself as “the Little Flower of Jesus” because she was just like the simple wild flowers in forests and fields, unnoticed by the greater population, yet growing and giving glory to God. Therese did not see herself as a brilliant rose or an elegant lily, by simply as a small wildflower. This is how she understood herself before the Lord – simple and hidden, but blooming where God had planted her.

Therese of the Child Jesus and The Holy Face:

When she entered the Carmelite Monastery to give her life to God, She took the religious name “Therese of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face.” Therese had a great devotion to the Infant Jesus, and her spirituality was a childlike simplicity and trust in God’s love. Because Therese was constantly looking to see the hidden Holy Face of Jesus in everyone and everything, Therese took that second part of her religious name. She explained: “I desire that, like the Face of Jesus, my face be truly hidden that no one on earth would know me. I thirsted after suffering and I longed to be forgotten.” Her religious name, Sr. Therese of the Child Jesus and Holy Face, therefore came to signify what she was about and how God’s grace was working in her. 

Little Way:

Even in prayer, Saint Therese teaches simplicity – talking to God and Jesus in direct, personal and heartfelt ways. She prayed from her heart as a child speaks honestly and trustingly to a parent they love.

She died at the age of 24, believing that her life was really just beginning for God, promising to spend her heaven doing good on earth. Her promised “Shower of Roses” began and has become a torrent in the Church ever since.
