Saint Therese of Lisieux House Intro
Howdy! My name is Brandie Guice and I am a junior RPTS major from Houston, focusing on event coordinating and management. I love to paint, spend time with my friends and family, and make people laugh. A fun fact about me is that I sleep talk every single night and often sleepwalk. I enjoy serving and sharing God’s love with others through Aggie Awakening and St. Mary’s Youth Retreat Team. I can’t wait to serve as a House Chair and to meet the incoming class of 2023!
Diego is the loudest and proudest member of the Fightin' Texas Aggie class of 2020. He is a Chemical Engineering major and loves playing soccer, running, drinking coffee, eating pie, being outdoors, listening to music, shooting pool, sleeping, time with the guys, and most all, Jesus! His favorite Saint is Maximillian Kolbe... or St. Francis De Sales.... or Maria Goretti... he can't really tell, they're all too great. But, his favorite thing of all is the Holy Mass, where God comes down for us so that can become one with him and so that we can unite the sacrifice of our life to that of Christ's sacrifice for us all.
About St. Therese of Lisieux:
St. Therese of Lisieux was a French Catholic who became a Carmelite nun at an early age. As a child, St. Therese had the ambition to become a saint. Through many childhood struggles such as suffering through a painful illness and the death of her mother, St. Therese turned to the Blessed Virgin Mary in times of despair and felt great comfort through her. After overcoming her illness, she had a conversion of spirit and felt a strong calling to enter the convent at age fifteen. St. Therese became known as the “Little Flower” because she lived simply and thought of herself as a simple and unnoticed wild flower in the forest. St. Therese called her simple spirituality her “little way.” The Roman Catholic Church celebrates the feast of St. Therese, the Little Flower, on October 1st each year.
