As our beloved Little Flower shared, “May today there be peace within… may you use the gifts you have received and pass on the love that has been given you.”
Today, we will be blessed to receive your personal prayer intentions, and the requests you have on behalf of your loved ones. The Carmelites and I will join your prayers with ours at a special Mass of Peace on August 1st dedicated to praying for peace in this world.
We also hope that you will take this God-given opportunity to help us honor St. Therese who was full of love and heavenly peace.
Your holy donation helps the Carmelites around the world spread devotion to the “Little Way” of St. Therese. A “little” gift from you — $10, or even $15, the price of a movie or a modest dinner out — will support and bring peace to our neighbors in developing countries in some very big ways.
Your generosity sustains the Carmelite ministries, allowing us to provide health care, faith development, literacy programs, community development — and so much more — to people around the world.
Please be generous today in your sacrificial offering to help us spread the love and peace of Jesus Christ to those who need it most.
Yours in love of St. Therese,
Fr. Tom Schrader, O. Carm.
