St. Therese Sacrifice Beads
Saint Therese of Lisieux was a happy child who loved Jesus. One day Therese's sister gave her a set of beads on which to keep count of little acts of love and sacrifices offered to God. She would pull a bead when she postponed a treat, or let someone have their way. Therese's mother wrote, "Even Therese wants to start making sacrifices now!"
We invite you to grow in virtue by offering sacrifices and noting them on your beads daily as well. Each rose scented bead set consists of a crucifix with a string of ten beads, each of which can be pulled and then remain in place. Pull a bead toward the crucifix for any act of self-denial or love for others, thus noting your little acts of love for God each day. This little string of beads can help you grow in holiness by reminding you to offer acts of love to God throughout the day. The crucifix reminds us that Jesus calls us to take up our cross daily and follow Him to life. You can also use these as a decade rosary! At the end of the day, pull all the beads back into place and thank God for His grace and mercy. Then the next day, begin again!
Saint Therese, pray for us!
