Feast of Saint Therese of the Child Jesus
St. Therese, the Little Flower, please pick me a rose from the Heavenly Garden and send it to me with a message of love. Ask God to grant me the favor I which I am asking, and tell Him I will love Him each day more and more. Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.
Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!
