ROSE PETALS FROM HEAVEN 
Saint Therese of Lisieux was declared a Doctor of the Church in 1997. She was born Therese Martin, on January 2, 1873, the youngest child of Louis Martin, a watchmaker, and Azelie-Marie Guerin, a lacemaker.  On April 9, 1888, Therese entered the Carmel at Lisieux. Therese of the Child Jesus died on September 30, 1897.  She was 24 years old.

CAUSE FOR SAINTHOOD:
There have been married saints in the history of the church but the Martins are the first couple to be given this title.

PETITE VOICE
The passages below were powerful in the life of Therese. Her parents inspired and taught scripture to all their children. Below are two passages found in Therese's notbooks that spoke to her in a powerful way: 
 +
PROVERBS 9:4-6

  4 “Let whoever is naive turn in here; to any who lack sense I say, 5 Come, eat of my food, and drink of the wine I have mixed! 6 Forsake foolishness that you may live; advance in the way of understanding.”
(rosary inspired by words above)

... considering  her mother lost 4 of their children, and died at an earl age leaving Therese wthitout her mother,  these words carried a great deal of meaning to herin her early life teaching her joy in the ways of discouragement. 'So will I comfort you"
+
  ISAIAH 66: 9-16
  9 Shall I bring a mother to the point of birth, and yet not let her child be born? says the LORD. Or shall I who bring to birth yet close her womb? says your God.  10 Rejoice with Jerusalem and be glad because of her, all you who love her; Rejoice with her in her joy, all you who mourn over her —  11  So that you may nurse and be satisfied from her consoling breast; That you may drink with delight at her abundant breasts! 
+
12 For thus says the LORD: I will spread prosperity over her like a river, like an overflowing torrent, the wealth of nations. You shall nurse, carried in her arms, cradled upon her knees;  13 As a mother comforts her child, so I will comfort you; in Jerusalem you shall find your comfort. 14 You will see and your heart shall exult, and your bodies shall flourish like the grass; 
+
The LORD’s power shall be revealed to his servants, but to hi enemies, his wrath. 15 For see, the LORD will come in fire, his chariots like the stormwind; To wreak his anger in burning rage and his rebuke in fiery flames. 16 For with fire the LORD shall enter into judgment, and, with his sword, against all flesh; Those slain by the LORD shall be many
(rosary inspired by words above)

  “If a little flower could speak, it seems to me that it would tell us quite simply all that God has done for it, without hiding any of its gifts. It would not, under the pretext of humility, say that it was not pretty, or that it had not a sweet scent, that the sun had withered its petals,or the storm bruised its stem, if it knew that such were not the case.”   Thérèse de Lisieux, Story of a Soul: The Autobiography of St. Therese of Lisieux 
  (rosary inspired by words above)

 'LOUIS'  LITTLE ROSE'
  ...  Well, I mean to try and find a lift by which I may be raised unto God, for I am too tiny to climb the steep stairway of perfection. [...] Thine Arms, then, O Jesus, are the lift which must raise me up even unto Heaven. To get there I need not grow; on the contrary, I must remain little, I must become still less. TL
