Meet The Irish

Meet The Irish

"Little Flower, at this hour show your power." St. Therese was known as the "little flower."

The rose is symbolic of St. Therese. There are a million stories about roses appearing as a signal that your request will be granted.

The Carmelite Order known for it’s terrific work throughout the world is the order that Therese had chose. Lisieu in her native France is the convent. It has been told over and over again in publications about the thousands of healings attributed to the great saint.

Our Lady of Mount Carmel is the head of the Carmelites and will partake in the healings.

Numerous people around the world wear the brown scapular. The Rosary is a big part of the daily prayers for your own intentions and for your loved ones.

Margie was worried about getting to see the processions and to get near the golden coffin where the artifacts are being carried assured Margie not to worry. The Carmelites will assist her to get the full views.

Of course we’ve been praying for our own requests which is an improvement of health through the grace of God.

We were worried about the throngs of people downtown. Lo and behold it has been announced that the coffin and artifacts are being brought to St. JAMES church on the ground of St. James Hospital just down the road – over the wall in our back garden. Halleluia!

Our prayers go out to you to those who need them. Fr. Titus Brasma the famous Dutch Carmelite who stepped forward to take the place of a Jewish prisoner in a concentration camp died by starvation.

If you are in Dublin go to the Carmelite Church on Whitefriar Street close to Saint Stephen’s Green and you will find the story of Father Titus, the holy priest who died because he defied Hitler.
