Makes the world go 'round

St. Therese, young as she was, had it spot-on. "In the heart of the Church, I will be love!" Because without love, the martyrs would not shed their blood, nor the missionaries preach: the Church itself would lose its reason for being.
It took Saul of Tarsus a while (not to mention one very hard fall!) to learn that lesson, but Therese owed the discovery of her unique vocation to Paul.
Forecast for today: a shower of roses.

That is a beautiful image of Saint Therese.

It's definitely showering here all day, and to my grateful surprise this morning, following an evening of thunderstorms, there was a blooming rose greeting me this morning in my garden!!
