Today, Oct. 1 is the feast day (in the new calendar) of St. Therese. It is also First Friday. We will attend Mass, Benediction, Father’s talk to children and unite our prayers with all those children around the world for the 8th Annual Worldwide Children’s Eucharistic Holy Hour.
The actual event will be broadcasted live on EWTN - Fri. October 1 at 10 AM ET.
St. Therese of Lisieux in her Eucharistic adoration as a child tells us:
"I loved above all the processions in honor of the Blessed Sacrament. What a joy it was for me to throw flowers beneath the feet of God! Before allowing them to fall to the ground, I threw them as high as I could and I was never so happy as when I saw roses touch the sacred monstrance." ~ Story of a Soul, The Autobiography of St. Therese of Lisieux)
