Therese: A Saint of Mercy for our Violent Times

Event Summary:Therese is a “modern saint” and a “little saint” who experienced life as we do; she shared in our difficulties and joys.
With sessions of teachings, time for reflection, opportunities for discussion and questions/answers we will explore what Therese understood by being a loving person toward herself and others.  We will consider how we might pray and respond to our imperfections as Therese did, and discuss how we might even ‘love our enemies,’ just as Therese loved the difficult nuns she lived with.
