St Thérèse of Lisieux – Child of Grace

“The only way I can prove my love is by scattering flowers and these flowers are every little sacrifice, every glance and word, and the doing of the least actions for love.”

At the request of Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor and the bishops of England and Wales, the relics of St. Thérèse of Lisieux will be visiting the UK from 16th September to 16th October 2009.

Boyce & Stanley will be involved with the music for the liturgies when the relics visit the Archdiocese of Birmingham on 19th September at St Chad’s Cathedral, and 21st September at the parish of Sacred Heart & St Teresa in Coleshill.

To mark the visit of the relics of St Thérèse of Lisieux to England and Wales Mike Stanley has written, recorded and produced two special tracks: Child of Grace (Thérèse) and My Song of Today.  Both songs are available on the four-track, limited edition EP entitled “Child of Grace” .

“My Song of Today and Child of Grace
capture the simplicity of St Thérèse and
will help all pilgrims pray more deeply.

CJM Music have captured
the spirit of the visit of the Relics of
St Thérèse in words and music. I am sure
that they will be used in our churches long
after the Relics have left our shores.”

Bishop Malcolm McMahon
Patron of the Visit of the Relics
