“The Brilliance of the Rose and the Whiteness of the Lily…” ~ St. Thérèse de Lisieux


“I understood that every flower created by Him is beautiful, that the brilliance of the rose and the whiteness of the lily do not lessen the perfume of the violet or the sweet simplicity of the daisy. I understood that if all the lowly flowers wished to be roses, nature would no longer be enamelled with lovely hues. And so it is in the world of souls, our Lord’s living garden.”

    • I teared up too. Another one of my readers, who’s blog you’re familiar with, also stated recently that she’s finding the images of flowers to be very emotionally moving. Flower power, sister!!!
