Thank you for this post on one of my favorite saints. I never thought about that reason for JPII coming to appreciate her in later years but it makes sense.

Re: your later post on RCWP's--she is also considered a patron saint of women's ordination as she wanted to be a priest and said she was glad she was dying at 24, the year she should have been ordained, if she couldn't. (This was edited out of earlier editions of her Story of a Soul). I am also a Catholic priest -- Independent Catholic, not RCWP, though I know and like them -- we have been around longer but are less famous. And yes, people who make their confession to me say they love being able to do so to a woman :-).

Any project of writing about women's lives is important--and if those women are called saints, in any tradition, they were still women, right? Their stories are worth knowing and thinking about. So keep it up!

(And thanks--our favorite teenaged sitter took Therese as her confirmation name a couple years ago, and now I know more about why.)

Kay, I'm attempting a series on women saints. I probably shouldn't, since as you say, patriarchal institution, but the saints have always meant a lot to me. I am trying to give them a feminist spin and probably failing! But certain female saints have historically meant a lot to women, and I'm sort of analyzing why I think some of them do? Probably a job for a Ph.d, and not me!

Anyway, thanks for commenting, Anonymous, Bint and Kay!

Well, I've got issues with that Pope and every Pope of such a patriarchal institution. But not being Catholic or having made a study of Catholic saints, I didn't know about St. Thérèse. Thanks. She was indeed worthy of recognition.

I needed this so much, Daisy. As a person with disabilities, it can be so difficult to do things that seem easy to others; accomplishing big things seems nearly impossible. However, I love how St. Thérèse shows us that there is value even in the smallest things. Even when I can't get up and walk around, I can smile at my nurse and ask her how she's feeling. Even when I can't cook, I can show appreciation for the meal made by others.

Reading about St. Thérèse makes me think about the scripture in Hebrews that reads:

"For God is not unrighteous so as to forget your work and the love you showed for his name"

If God views the love we show for his name as worthy of remembrance, we can know that even the smallest of our actions, when done with kindness and love, have value in his eyes.

My mother used to say novenas to St. Therrese. I enjoyed reading this.
