With St. Therese of the child Jesus in the matter of Devotion it is always a Good Rule to keep in touch with the Church to share her spirit to Honor those saints whom she at any particular period especially honors to practise those devotions which she for any reason especially encourages now it is Safe to say that no Saint of recent times has received such extraordinary Marks of Public Honor and of Public approbation from the Church no Saint has had her Devotion so warmly and emphatically encouraged by recent Popes As St. Teresa of Lesieux. Some fifty years ago when sister Therese was beginning to be known and the Devotion to her was beginning to spread voices were raised in protest As if she were too Young or too insignificant to be the object of so. Much attention. But All that kind of thing has been swept away by the voice of the Church and especially by the supreme judgment passed when St. Therese was canonised in May 1925. That is an infallible pronouncement of Christ s vicar on Earth declaring solemnly by virtue of his supreme teaching authority that Teresa Martin is numbered amongst the saints of god. That sentence set the Seal of approval for Ever on the life Virtues spirit and miracles of this carmelite nun. And that approval is not merely the find ing of a High judicial body which after Long and careful investigation delivers judgment on & Case submitted to it it is that also but this sentence is ratified in heaven. In it Are fulfilled Christ s words what Soever thou Shalt bind upon Earth shall be bound also in the feast of St. Teresa was almost immediately extended to the Universal Church the whole world clamoured to have her feast made Universal.
