Valentine’s Day is about love. St. Therese loved Jesus with her whole heart, and she constantly shows us how to love in her “Little Way”, as we are made for love, too!

Valentine’s Day is about reaching out and showing the people you care about most that you care about them always. A phone call or a card in the mail can really make someone’s day special.

This Valentine’s Day, I invite you to show your friends and family that you love them by sending one of the enclosed Valentine’s Day cards. Designed especially for the Society of the Little Flower, these cards help you show your love — and share St. Therese’s love with others. I hope this “little” gesture draws you closer to your loved ones, to our beloved Little Flower, and to God.

As a gift of love and friendship, the Carmelites will remember you and your intentions in five Novenas of Masses beginning on St. Valentine’s Day at the National Shrine of St. Therese in Darien, Illinois.

With a grateful and loving heart,

Fr. Tom Schrader, O. Carm.
