At Mass today for the Feast of St. Therese, the priest, who is a Carmelite prior, wore the chasuble made by Sister Celine, St. Therese's sister. It is absolutely beautiful. After Mass, I got to touch the front and the back, all embroidered with flowers and with an additional colored set in of a picture of St. Therese, made of some material I could not identify. I got to touch that as well.
God our Father,
you promised your kingdom
to those who are willing to become like little children.
Help us to follow the way of St Thérèse with confidence
so that by her prayers
we may come to know your eternal glory.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
