    “I was standing with three of my managers at work. I work in consulting and they were talking about their extravagant summer vacation plans, like going to the South of France, spending time on yachts, etc. They asked me what I was doing and I told them that I was planning to spend time at a monastery and proceeded to tell them about Mount Carmel in La Plata, MD. None of those coworkers are Christian/Catholic, and at times I feel guilty because I work in business and not in a role where I help people on a more personal/deeper/soul level. All of the sudden I smelled the most beautiful scent of roses - it was so strong that it felt like I was smelling it directly under my nose, but no one new had walked in front of me and no one else around me seemed to smell it. It lingered for probably 30 seconds. I believe it was St. Thérèse comforting me as my friend and sister in Christ. ”

    “St. Therese has always been a part of my life. She is my mother's favorite and both her and I chose her for our confirmation names. I also named my daughter after her. My mother past away earlier this month and then Notre Dame burned. I just viewed first video of damage done to the interior. As the camera rotates, there is the statue of St Therese! Always roses from heaven!”

    “I was told 25 years ago that my chances of getting pregnant was only 10%, it was a devastating diagnosis after so many years of fertility treatment. I have always prayed to St. Therese, I said my novena faithfully everyday to help me with another child and my sister suggested to go to her doctor and I did and she gave me a new treatment plan which included a very religious Catholic Gynecologist who did a procedure which had given me hope. Two weeks before Easter, my girlfriend visited me and gave me a rose and on Easter Monday, I found out I was pregnant with triplets after 11 years of trying, ended up with twins and their middle names are Therese. Super blessing from my favourite saint, I say to those who are struggling with problems...prayers are so powerful, keep the faith and remember when everything fails, God's love will give us strength to carry our cross. God bless us all!”

    “Feb. 28, 2016 was the lowest & darkest time in my life. I fall asleep praying & crying all night, then I was awakened by a very strong smell of flowers at exactly 3 o'clock in the morning the next day. I jumped out of bed and turned on all the lights in the bedroom thinking I was dreaming, but the southing and calming smell of roses stayed for a few minutes. I was in absolute peace, then prayed & cried some more thanking God for the intervention. A few days later, I was in a hospital for my husband's appointment when I saw this Catholic magazine in the waiting room with St. Therese's picture on the cover. I read the article and realized that St. Therese came and consoled me that Feb. night in 2016. I've been researching all I can find about her, watched all the YouTube videos & she became my favorite Saint & my little intercessor. Thank you my little flower-pray for us broken hearted! ”

    “I had two miscarriages and it was clear that it was going to be difficult to carry another baby. I prayed for St. Therese to intercede for me, and today I have my healthy baby boy. He will be 2 in March. I continue to pray for her intercession everyday to keep my family healthy and safe. Thank you St. Therese for interceding in our lives. ”

    “Many years ago, I had recently moved to a new state and was feeling a bit lost. Turmoil was troubling my soul. I have always prayed to my patroness saint, and I remember praying very hard to her and asking her if she was really listening, was she there in heaven. Afterwards, I had a vivid dream where there was a leafless bush outside my front window. On the bush was a single yellow rose. It was such bizarre dream, but the next day I was on-line and I saw something about the color of roses and what they meant. My dream came rushing back to me, and I quickly googled what yellow roses "meant." The answer: FRIENDSHIP. I believe that St. Therese told me that I had a friend in heaven...and I felt the immense power of her love. ”

    “27 years ago I read first “Story of a Life “ then I read “Story of a Soul” and realized I had just read Therese’s autobiography twice! I was drawn to her life and especially her Oblation to Christ’s Divine Mercy! I kept saying to myself “ I want that, I believe that, I feel just like that “! I was speaking to a few friends after Mass about Therese’s life and her “Little Way”! One lady Joan asked me why didn’t I come with hto our Monastery in Eugene? I said, “ And visit the Sisters?” (I at the time was a Mother of 4 young children). She said to come to the meeting of OCDS! I didn’t even know there was a OCDS or what it was! I went to the meeting and when asked to introduce myself I gave them my full name “ Therese Marie Frances Briggs; they immediately said “You certainly have come yo the right place!” I felt like I had just come home! I have been there now 27 years 😇��!!!”
