Mass of St. Thérèse

FAQs - Frequently Asked Questions

Why do you call the music the 'Mass of St. Thérèse'?
The first song, 'Prayer to St. Thérèse', introduces St. Thérèse and tells her story.
The closing song, 'Song of St. Theresa The Little Flower' speaks to us as she might speak today -- Many of the words are from her quotes.
One of my favorite songs, 'The Peace Blessing' speaks of 'The Child Jesus and the Holy Face' which were her chosen names as a Carmelite nun.
The music incorporates the 'Eucharistic Prayer - Mass of Reconciliation 1'. While these words were not yet written during her lifetime, she often prayed to save souls so this and the words in the remainder of the songs are consistent with her Theresian 'Little Way'.

How do you place the accents on the name Thérèse?
The ASCII key sequence for è is alt/138 or alt/0232
The ASCII key sequence for é is alt/130 or alt/0233

Keyboard: The 'Num Lock' key turns the keypad on the right on and off. Ensure the 'Num Lock' light is 'on'. While holding the 'alt' key press 130 or 138 consecutively on the keypad. (You must use the keypad on the right side of your keyboard and NOT the numbers across the top of the keyboard.)

Laptops: Use the same key sequence with the keypad imbedded in the 789, uio, jkl, m area of your keyboard. Use of the 'NUM Lock' key may be specific to your machine and may require use of the blue 'Function Key'.

What do church bells mean?
Bells are attributed to Christian Worship and since the sixth century have been used to call people to worship. In Catholic tradition, the pealing of the bells from the belfry represents the voice of the Lord calling the faithful to prayer.
