Silver Saint Therese the Little Flower of Jesus
Saint Therese Little Flower Necklace, caste silver and glass beaded chain in grey, 16 inches long, fashioned from a medallion that belonged to my Mom. My Mom was a member of The Society of Saint Therese since 2008 I recently learned. I now am carrying on the family tradition and devotion to Saint Therese.
St. Therese loved nature, and often used the imagery of nature to explain how the Divine Presence is everywhere, and how everything is connected in God’s loving care and arms. Therese 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.
“I will spend my heaven, doing good on earth.”
I love this, and I hope you do too, if for nothing else than the message Saint Therese brings to us all.
Peace, love, and understanding
