St. Therese Feast Day Event – “Little Way Award”

The National Shrine of the Little Flower celebrates the life of St. Therese with an evening of reflection and prayer with special guest speaker Msgr. Eugene Morris.

The “little way” is an image that St. Therese translated into her understanding of being a disciple of Jesus Christ, of seeking holiness of life in the ordinary and the everyday and her commitment to the tasks and to the people we meet in our everyday lives. Therese’s spirituality is of doing the ordinary, with extraordinary love. She lived each day with an unshakable confidence in God’s love. “What matters in life,” she wrote, “is not great deeds, but great love.”

“I will spend my heaven doing good on earth. I will let fall a shower of roses.”

We will celebrate this evening by recognizing two individuals, two faith-filled people who model the characteristics of St. Therese. Individuals who nurture the National Shrine of the Little Flower’s community through service, stewardship, and involvement based on the spirit of St. Therese.

We are honored to recognize The National Shrine of the Little Flower’s former beloved pastor, Fr. Edward Prus and Deby Schlapprizzi, a national speaker and lecturer on matters of faith and morals, as this year’s recipients of the “Little Way” Award.
