Last night, I attended Benediction and a prayer service for the Feast of St. Therese.
At the end of Adoration, we got to kiss a relic of St. Therese, and after the blessing of the roses, we each received several.
I, happily, was handed a white one and a red one.
A man had donated 100 dozen roses to the Carmelite Monastery in honor of his mother who died.
Here are some of the photos from this wonderful occasion.
Bishop Cruz passed out the flowers.
