Thérèsian Thunderbolt

"Speaking of clouds, I remember how one day when we were out, the blue sky became overcast and a storm came on, accompanied by vivid lightning. I looked round on every side, so as to lose nothing of the grand sight. A thunderbolt fell in a field close by, and, far from feeling the least bit afraid, I was delighted--it seemed that God was so near." St. Therese of Lisieux. The Story of a Soul (Illustrated) (pp. 24-25). Kindle Edition.

Today, we are the heirs of the House of New Bethany in the royal lineage of our foundress, St. Mary Magdalene.
