There was a good attendance at all of the Masses of the Triduum honoring St. Therese. After the 12:00 and 3:00 Masses it was nice to see people walking through the Mall with their long stem (articial) rose. Every one looked at them with some what of a puzzled look on their faces. "What's this all about", they seemed to say. Little did they realize that it was a reminder of St. Therese's promise to "spend her heaven doing good on earth and letting fall from heaven a shower of roses".

Brother Damien has designed a cube upstairs in the Mall in front of Dellaria's Salon with products from the Carmelite Gift Shop. He made a really good presentation (perhaps he should have been a Show Window Designer). Be sure to congratulate him on his work.

Of special note is a large and very beautiful Nativity Scene that will be given away to some lucky visitor to the Carmelite Gift Shop between now and Christmas. With just a visit to the Gift Shop (no purchase necessary) one's name can be entered into a drawing to see who will have this beautiful Nativity scene in their home this Christmas.
