St. Therese Liturgical Ideas to Share
I love turning the calendar to October...Some of my favorite church celebrations unfold this month (And family ones too:)
October 1st is St. Therese...A remarkable Story of a Soul, whose life story continues to radiate showers of roses from heaven. It was a huge blessing to be able to visit her quaint little childhood town of Lisieux, France a few years ago. I wrote a little bit about it, here. Since she was born in France, we decided to make "french" toast in her honor this year. Being that it's October and pumpkin is in the air, this seemed a fitting recipe to try...Pumpkin French Toast...Boy was it scrumptious! The best part was being able to make it the night before and just popping it in the oven the next morning. What a great way to kick off October:) This recipe is definitely a keeper!
