During his flight to Colombia Pope Francis received a white rose from a Colombian journalist, recalling his deep devotion to Saint Therese of Lisieux.
On various occasions, Pope Francis has spoken of his custom of asking favors from the saint, and her responses in his view are little "miracles."
During the papal trip to Colombia Sept. 6, it was the journalist from Caracol Radio, Cesar Moreno, who gave the white rose to the Holy Father.
"When I gave it to him he said 'Ah, we begin with dear Saint Therese! We're getting off to a great start.' So he liked it a lot and looked very happy. I felt very happy and joyful that I had pleased him," the journalist told CNA.
