Elementary:

We begin in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.​ Amen.

Today we think of St. Thérèsa of Lisieux [Liz-U] popularly known as St. Thérèsa of the Child Jesus or "The Little Flower". She loved nature and saw herself as the little flower of Jesus. One of our Regina parishes, Little Flower, is named after this prayerful person who is the patron saint of florists, missionaries, pilots, and priests.

October is also Women's History Month. We are thankful for the different gifts that women have shared with us and our world.
