This first image is another in my series of Biblical Quotations with calligraphy and Folk decorations. Actually the second item here is not scanned at all, but done in "Paintbrush", and the plastered up here.It has an explanation attached. The third image didn't scan as well as I wish it had done, but since I find it to be a fascinating image, I am placing it here as is. I found it printed simply on a 3x5 card, with nothing to identify it. I was sure it was a Catholic Saint, so I showed it to a friend, and was told it is an image of Saint Theresa of Lisieux, patron of Missionaries. She is also known as "Little Flower of Jesus", and she became a Carmelite Nun at age 15. After proving herself to be a very dedicated Nun, she contracted TB and died by age 24. Before her death, she was instructed by her Prioress to write an autobiography, in which she wrote that after her death she would "let fall a shower of roses"- miracles and favors. She has had many miracles laid to her credit, which led to her Canonization in 1925, less than 30 years after her death. I have read quite a bit about Saints, and find their stories to be both fascinating and inspiring. Their faith, dedication, suffering, and service are incredible, and those of us not immersed in the Catholic faith are missing alot, by being unfamiliar with the lives of these exceptional people.
