Basilica of the National Shrine of the Little Flower
1715 N. Zarzamora St., San Antonio, Texas 78201
The Basilica of the National Shrine of the Little Flower is commemorating the Feast Day of St. Thérèse of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face, the parish patron saint, known as “The Little Flower,” Sept. 30-Oct. 1.
On Sunday, Sept. 30, a special ceremony, the Transit of St. Thérèse, will be held at 5:30 p.m., followed by the Vigil Mass at 6:30 p.m. The ceremony, instituted in 2008 by Little Flower pastor Fr. Luis Gerardo Belmonte-Luna, OCD, narrates the saint’s last conversations before her death. The 24-year-old Carmelite nun invites us to contemplate her encounter with the Lord as she said: “I am not dying; I am entering to a new life.”
Solemn Mass will be held on Monday, Oct. 1 at 6 p.m.
