- Preferred Character Gender
- Fantasy, Horror and Sci-fi. I'll try basically anything though. I also love strange and unusual RP genre concepts. Different is good!

Thérèse of Lisieux
Feast day: October 1
Canonized in 1925
Thérèse of Lisieux is the patron saint of foreign missions, France, and outreach to Russia.
From obscurity as a young, idealistic Carmelite, Thérèse of Lisieux has emerged as one of the best-loved saints. Her simplicity attracts us because she puts holiness within our reach. From her childhood, Thérèse aspired to become a missionary and a martyr. It soon became clear to her, however, that neither option was open to a cloistered nun.
Thérèse learned to do the loving thing in every situation, which she discovered was the fuel that fired the faith of martyrs and saints. That was the secret of her “little way” of perfection that has captivated our hearts.
Great deeds are forbidden me. I cannot preach the Gospel nor shed my blood—but what does it matter? My brothers toil instead of me and I, a little child, keep close by the throne of God and I love for those who fight. Love proves itself by deeds.
—Thérèse of Lisieux
