St. Thérèse of Lisieux is one of the most popular saints of the Catholic Church. Nicknamed “The Little Flower”, you could say that Thérèse never did anything really earth-shattering or even remarkable (at least not compared to some other big-name saints), yet she is now known and loved all over the world. 

Just who was The Little Flower? And what can her life teach us today?

In this lesson your students will get to know St. Thérèse of Lisieux and have time to ponder how they can live out “The Little Way” in their own lives. 

In my own experience, Thérèse has been a game changer for my students. Her "littleness" (normal-ness) resonates with them. After all, Thérèse dealt with wild emotions, doubts, and even bullying (from nuns in her own convent!). And yet she found a path of holiness in "The Little Way" which every person (little kids on up!) can easily apply to their own lives. I hope and pray that your students experience the power of The Little Flower as well!

St. Thérèse of Lisieux… PRAY FOR US!
