Saint Therese Martin -
Therese Martin was born at Alencon, France, in 1873. While still a young girl, she entered the Carmelite monastery at Lisieux and became known as Therese of the Child Jesus. She lived a life of humility, evangelical simplicity, and trust in God. By word and example, she taught these virtues to the novices of the community. Offering her life for the salvation of souls and the growth of the Church, she died September 30, 1897. Known affectionately as "the Little Flower," this simple woman was not only canonized but ultimately proclaimed a "Doctor of the Church."

Personal Prayer: Pathway to Joy
Marcellino D'Ambrosio, Ph.D.
Everyone knows that personal prayer is important. You can't expect to deepen a relationship with God talking with Him only once a week! But how, in the midst of the busy, noisy life we all lead, can we develop a pattern of daily prayer that really works? And if we are successful in carving out some moments for prayer, what do we do? How should we spend that time in way that would be most fruitful?
Dr. Marcellino D'Ambrosio has taught spiritual theology academically, but, more importantly, he's had plenty of practice applying that tradition to everyday life. With a family of seven, a business, and a non-profit corporation to run, he knows the challenges that a busy, active life can pose to the Christian who wants to pray. In this talk, he lays down principles and gives practical suggestions on how busy laypeople can develop a prayer life that leads to joy and personal transformation.
