Upcoming Broadcasts

Therese of Lisieux, or The Little Flower, is a fascinating saint. Lori and Alice return to her memoirs, "The Story of a Soul" to talk about women in the Catholic Church, how small actions can lead to great holiness, maintaining faith in difficult times, the struggles of loving others, and the importance of prayer. Hopefully we will shed some light on this saint...and maybe persuade you to learn more about her!
