St. Therese Novena 2022
As you may have seen already in our recent Carmelite Bulletin it’s time to begin the Novena to St. Therese. She is one of the most amazing intercessors we have in heaven! The “Little Flower” once said the easiest and best way to ask God for something in our need is to go straight to His Heart. Therese would simply ask from her heart with the confidence of a child, knowing full well that her beloved Father in heaven could not resist a prayer said out of love and trust. Now that she sees Him face to face how much more will He be eager to answer her pleas for you and me?
Speaking of intercession, the nuns will be praying for you to our great little Saint and Doctor of the Church, our sister in Carmel, St. Therese of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face.
Solemnity of St. Therese
The Discalced Carmelites in the Oklahoma Province have St. Therese as our patron saint. Therefore, we are blessed to be able to celebrate her feast day as a solemnity each year. Not many places have this privilege! So our Mass for this day, October 1st, will be solemnly celebrated here in our monastery chapel. We will have the traditional Blessing of the Roses and distribute them after Mass. If you are close by, we’d love to see you there. Otherwise, you will be with us in prayer.
The Mass will be at normal time – 7:30 a.m., Saturday, October 1, 2022.
