May Today There be Peace Within: St. Therese of Lisieux, The Little Flower

Today I share with you a prayer from St. Therese of Lisieux, the Little Flower. She was born in Alencon, France in 1873. Therese is known as the Little Flower, because she saw herself as a flower in the garden of God, honoring God by “being herself among all the other flowers in God’s garden”. (source) In 1888, she entered the Carmel of Lisieux, and became a Carmelite Nun on September 8, 1890. She died of tuberculosis at the age of 24. She is the Patron Saint of missions, gardeners and florists. (source)

I chose this prayer today because I believe peace and unity throughout the world must begin with peace with ourselves. We must love ourselves and be content with ourselves before we can spread that peace to others.

Have a beautiful day my friends. Namaste!
