St. Therese reminds us to dig deep within our hearts and souls to see joy not in presents and material things, but in friendships family, and concern for our neighbours. She said “Joy isn’t found in material objects surrounding us, but in the inner recesses of the soul.” She helps us to see joy in the “little things” even as we struggle.

Decorate the National Shrine with your Christmas Prayer Intentions!

The Society of the Little Flower is excited to continue the Christmas Tree of Hope. We place your Christmas intentions on ornaments and use them to decorate the National Shrine of St. Therese in Darien, IL.

This year’s ornament is St. Therese. Let it carry your special intentions by filling out the form below. Your ornament will be a symbol of faith and hope this Christmas Season and will be remembered in our Christmas Novenas of Masses.
