In honor of the feast of St. Therese of the Child Jesus tomorrow, we honor the saint whose "Little Way" has inspired so many faithful to this day. Although she died at a young age, St. Therese believed that her life was only the beginning for God, and has continued to "shower roses from Heaven" ever since. Not only that, but her surviving sisters also took vows and entered religious life (yes, her sisters were her actual sisters, too!). In honor of the Little Flower, we pray this prayer for her intercession today: ⁣

One of the most famous saints of our time, St. Pio of Pietrelcina was born in Italy and joined the Friars of St. Francis before serving his country as a Capuchin soldier in WWI. ⁣

He was known to have been attacked by the devil, sustained the stigmata for 50 years, and bilocated at times, along with other miraculous manifestations. He passed away in 1968. ⁣

In honor of his feast day today, we pray this prayer for his intercession: ⁣
