St. Therese, the Little Flower, a Carmelite nun from Lisieux, France, had a profound spiritual life and continues long after her death to influence Christian thinking. One of her best loved quotes is the one I’ve included in this image, a picture of Lady Banksia roses I took at the Carmelite monastery not far from where I live.
“I want to spend my heaven in doing good on earth . . . After my death, I will let fall a shower of roses.”
