The Little Flower: a rosary in honor of St. Thérèse of Lisieux
n"What matters in life is not great deeds, but great love."
-St. Thérèse of Lisieux
artist's notes: Known at the Little Flower, St. Thérèse of Lisieux is beloved for her 'little way,' which focuses on doing ordinary things with great love. She famously said, "I will spend heaven doing good on earth. I will let fall a shower of roses." In fact, it is said that when prayer is answered, one may smell roses even when none are physically present.
She was canonized a saint in 1925, less than 30 years after her death; Pope John Paul II named her a Doctor of the Church in 1997.
This design evokes the colors and simplicity of her Carmelite habit, as well as the roses with which she is associated.
elements: 8mm smoky quartz, chocolate pearls, Swarovski crystal, bronze crucifix and deep-cut bronze rose 'Our Father' beads.
Available in an Irish style single-decade rosary (see smaller photo).
