Are you interested in learning more about Carmelite spirituality? The Apostolate of the Little Flower is a nonprofit publication and ministry of the Discalced Carmelite Friars of San Antonio. Its purpose is to spread devotion to St. Thérèse of Lisieux, “The Little Flower.” Published quarterly and sent out to over 2,000 subscribers, this publication includes articles from our friars on the spirituality of St. Thérèse and the Discalced Carmelites. It also shares news from the Basilica and the Province of St. Thérèse. Subscription is free; donations are greatly appreciated to help with publication costs.
Established as part of our first apostolate, The Little Flower Magazine, reached over 100,000 subscribers in 1923. Recognizing the great devotion of subscribers from all over the country, the friars took as their mission to spread devotion to Thérèse, to prepare for her canonization in 1925, and to build a national shrine in her honor.
