    Touched in so many ways!

    This book really touch me. I didn't want it to end. St. Therese has been there for me in my life. It was so nice to see how she touched others. Everyone should read this book.

    A Wonderful and Inspirational Book

    I believe that my own strong devotion to St. Therese of Lisieux, lovingly known as ¿The Little Flower¿, stems from the fact that she gives me such great hope ¿ hope that someone who spends most of every day doing mundane little tasks (like washing laundry and driving car pools), can make these little acts holy by offering them to God with a loving heart. In her new book Shower of Heavenly Roses: Stories of the intercession of St. Therese of Lisieux (Crossroad Publishing Company, September 2004, paperback, 227 pages), author Elizabeth Ficocelli shares stories of countless hearts touched through the intercession of St. Therese. For those not acquainted with St. Therese and her wonderful autobiography Story of a Soul, Ficocelli¿s introduction relates the life history and spirituality of this magnificent woman. In her Prologue, Ficocelli shares her own personal faith journey and the role in that journey played by St. Therese, as well as the meaning of the sign of the rose. Millions have turned to St. Therese for aid and intercession in times of difficulty and despair. The stories shared in Shower of Heavenly Roses are stirring accounts of prayers answered by miracles, great and small. St. Therese inspired many with her words ¿I want to spend my heaven doing good on earth.¿ Shower of Heavenly Roses shows that St. Therese¿s spirit of love and service, her ¿little way¿, lives on in our world.

    VERY POOR JOB!

    Supposed author clearly has not done her research on the subject material before just phoning this poor attempt in! Save your money! This "book?" is clearly just a forum for her own religous viewpoints and nothing more.
