The Carmelites and Society of the Little Flower invite you to pray with our newly designed St. Therese rosary.
St. Therese drew so near to the love in the heart of Jesus that she devoted her whole life and, indeed, her heavenly life, to making Jesus known and loved throughout the world. She invites us to share that divine love in her shower of roses. The Little Flower Rosary can help immerse us in the mystery of divine love.
My mother prayed five rosaries every day – one for each of her children. Seeing her smiling lovingly as she prayed her rosary every day is a treasured image in my mind.
The mission of St. Therese today is the mission of her Carmelite Priests, Nuns, Sisters, and Brothers, throughout the world. She wanted to "make God known and loved to the ends of the earth." Please help the Carmelites in our missionary outreach, especially in Asia, Africa, and Latin America.
We all can use the calming effect of rosary beads focusing our hearts and minds in prayer. Please forward your intentions to me, along with your donation to help the Carmelites here in the United States and in our foreign missions. Your intentions will be remembered each day at Mass.
May our Blessed Mother lead you closer to Jesus through praying the Little Flower Rosary daily.
Fr. Bob Colaresi, O.Carm.
