The Eyes of St. Therese

While I love every picture of St. Therese, there is just something about this one!  Her eyes speak to me – they have since I was a little girl.  At the age of 9 years, I read her “Story of a Soul”, one of the few that was actually from HER authentic writings and not edited by her blood sister and prioress, Mother Pauline.  The book was by a Fr. Ronald Knox.  I actually read it in my school library – back in the days when things were normal and they were banning catholic books and the Bible from schools and letting evil, satanic, new age garbage in or tossing catholic books and letting other denominational books stay!

St. Therese spoke to me way back then.  My middle name is after her, Therese, so she is my patron.  Let St. Therese’s eyes speak to you too!
