St. Therese Relics in London
On Oct. 1, all Catholics celebrated the Feast of St. Therese the Little Flower from France. On Wednesday, queues of Catholics and others saw her relics on display in London. It's part of a month-long tour through England and Wales. The Guardian newspaper is generally nothing but skeptical, and yet here is their reporter's take on the holy event. Similar to the woman he met in the line, I took the name Therese for Confirmation in 1979 because I was inspired by her little way and by the life of Mother Teresa living in the midst of America's materialistic phase.
