Jesus is the living water that we need. When we follow Him, we find our way. And as members of the Society of the Little Flower, we know St. Therese is with us at every step and, in her “Little Way,” showing us how to love.

Because Jesus is the living water, and a healer of all people, water has become a true symbol of healing throughout the world.  We can find healing in the waters from the grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes in France.  St. Therese and St. Bernadette — both French women of intense faith and both saints who believed with their whole hearts — invite us to follow their example and place our trust in God.

Please include your special intentions below so that my Carmelite brothers and I can remember you and your needs in our prayers.   We appreciate any donation you can send to support the work of the Carmelites and help provide health care for those in need. Thank you for being a devoted friend of St. Therese.

Gratefully in the Little Flower,

Fr. Tom Schrader, O. Carm.
