Feast of St. Therese of Lisieux

October 1

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every year that begins at 12:00am on day 1 of October, repeating indefinitely

During her short 24 years of life from 1873 to 1897, a Carmelite nun from Normandy, Therese of Lisieux, expressed amazing insights into life and a simple recipe for holiness. Her meditations on being a “little one” of God and putting all her trust in God led to an abandonment of her own way and desires, an emptying process that allowed space to be filled with God’s gifts.
