A Prayer from St. Therese of Lisieux

May today there  be peace within.
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be content knowing you are a child of God.
Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of us.

This is the tomb of St. Therese of Lisieux, one of the well-loved saints known as the "Little Flower of Jesus." She grants wishes thru "signs" by way of roses. I took this photo---her body is incorrupt and she looks just like she is sleeping peacefully.  Next blog entry: St. Therese's house and Basilica.

This is not the incorrupt body or St. Therese of Lisieux. She was buried in the convent cemetery and later her remains disinterred when the cause for sainthood began. This is a representation of her body layed out in the convent, right after she died. There are first class relics of St. Therese, thus she decayed, as she foretold. This representation is at the convent in Lisieux...right outside the chapel.
