The divine influence

Far more noble is that learning which flows from above, from the divine influence, than that which with labour is acquired by the industry of man. – St. Therese of Lisieux

  1. Is she patron of Catholic education? If not, just by her comment above, she should be!

    1. Amen… I think she is considered a “doctor” of the Church… and she’d be the first to say that all her knowledge came/comes only from the Holy Spirit.. 🙂

  2. *Lord Jesus son of God have mercy on me a sinner (Jesus Prayer) your child *

  3. On 7/24, I went to an Exposition of Treasures of the Church which is relics of Saints and Blesseds. What an extraordinary array of relics from St. Agnes of Rome to Blessed Veronika Narmuntowicz. It was especially a blessing for me to hold a relic of Therese of Lisieux, as she is my Carmelite name. There were about 400 people at this display and I not was not able to get through all the relics. But I did manage to hold about 5 to 10 of the relics. There was even a piece of Jesus’ cross and also of Mary’s veil. Faye O’Brien, OCDS

  4. I desperately need prayer for my diabetes I meant to learn more about it. And the return of Ron Shepherd in my life.
    Thank you
