A highlight from LST9 The Passion of St. Therese The Letters of St. Therese of Lisieux with Fr. Timothy Gallagher Discerning Hearts Podcast
"The asserting hearts .com in cooperation with the oblates of the Virgin Mary presents the letters of St. Therese of the suit with Father Timothy Gallagher Father Gallagher is a member of the oblates of the Virgin Mary a religious community dedicated to retreats and spiritual direction according to the spiritual exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola He is featured on several series found on the eternal word television network He is also author of numerous books on the spiritual teachings of St. Ignatius of Loyola and the venerable Bruno Lanteri founder of the oblates of the Virgin Mary as well as other works focused on aspects of the spiritual life The letters of St. Therese of the suit with Father Timothy Gallagher, I'm your host Chris McGregor So this is May 9th of her final year she dies September 30th The symptoms are not yet at their worst. It's tuberculosis. It was tuberculosis that would take her life We've mentioned earlier from a very early age Therese, she had bronchitis every winter and she had whooping cough very often For several years the sisters had already noticed that her voice would get hoarse in the morning and in the evening Her cousin Marie who was the daughter of the pharmacist and whose letters are very helpful because she has a bit of the Doctor's eye and she describes more clearly than any of the others the symptoms Therese is undergoing as she's writing to family members and others They were worried. They could see that something was not right and a year earlier on Holy Thursday and Good Friday. She has that coughing up of blood Which almost incredibly was not taken as seriously as it should have been Now Therese herself to be fair in all of this Therese herself is in part if we can say this of a saint to blame because She minimized the symptoms she hid them as long as she could in fact when she had that bleeding She never said anything to her sister Pauline who only found out much later because she didn't want them worrying about herself and She struggled to keep up with the discipline and the the daily or Arrium and so forth of the monastery Carry out her tasks even at times just even to walk up the steps. She would almost have to stop at each step She would go through the day with fever and chills all of this has been going on but The symptoms will get to their worst in August where she has a month of excruciating pain But the tuberculosis is progressive and what it's doing is it's eating up the lungs and it's progressively getting harder and harder for her to breathe So a book by this Bishop whom I mentioned as perhaps the primary scholar of Therese He's not a dry academic he loves her and he writes well about her and with great knowledge This book is entitled the passion of Therese of this year, and it's by Bishop Guy Gaucher G -a -u -c -h -e -r And in one chapter in this book, he describes the symptoms that Therese undergoes with the tuberculosis So he entitles this section here from Therese words. I didn't expect to suffer like this. Oh Some of the remedies that were done and Therese bore them She knew they were going to be useless She's like her mother in this. Zelie never had much faith in the remedies The doctors would offer. Of course medicine was not at its present level at that time I'll only mention one of them which is just kind of hard for us to imagine It was called pointe de feu points of fire and what would happen was they thought to increase circulation to help the body a Needle would be heated to where it was red -hot and it would be applied to the skin of the person and Therese had this done several times up to 500 applications of these needles like this Now you can imagine the condition in which she would return to her her room or her infirmary the infirmary She bore all of these things, you know gives a whole new meaning to her expression about thousand little pinpricks. Oh My goodness, is that a possibility of something that I mean in that experience, I mean it gives it a whole new dimension, doesn't it? Well, it's really hard for us to imagine You know the kinds of things that end and diet foods that were just very difficult for her to eat and so forth You know it was and some other things I won't get into all the details But part of her martyrdom is really the only word for it Was the medical attention such as it was that she was given because she was also left without medical help At times when she desperately needed it and also morphine was available to sedate pain But the superior never allowed it now to be fair to the superior when she later herself She died of cancer a very painful death. She would not use it herself It was just considered something that nuns would not use, you know So it was not as though she was simply being cruel to Torres and although in effect it meant that Torres bore excruciating pain with no mitigation at all in these last months of her life But it was not necessarily out of bad will There were also other things involved There was a doctor who was the regular doctor for the Carmel and who was a friend of the superior and good man One of his sons was a priest But when he was away at times a family doctor that this actually was the husband that her cousin Jean married Could have come and helped but the superior just really didn't didn't want that So especially during that month of August when she went through the worst of her pain She had no medical attention during that time. Can I ask you this? I mean What would those sisters going through her blood sister is going through watching this? With this superior that didn't seem to be responsive. I It was terrible. In fact Surreptitiously on a few occasions they mixed a little morphine into drinks and things they did the best they could To try to help her in that situation. This was Torres of the child Jesus and of the holy face very much It's her passion. That's the title of this book that we're quoting So I'm just going to list the symptoms now these symptoms as I'm as I'm saying We're not yet at this stage in May when the letter that we're reading was written But they indicate throughout this time to res continued to respond to letters there was a seminarian Maurice Belair and The very nice book has been written on this by Bishop Patrick Ahern. That's Maurice resin Maurice the story of a love a seminarian who was really struggling Wrote to the Carmel asked if a sister could pray for him the prioress asked her as to do this So in this last year and a half or so of her life You have this handful of letters that he writes And then her response. It's always the same he respites rights discouraged by his failures He writes back to encourage him. God is calling you to be a saint. I know it you can do it But especially for this I'll just quote this one instance because his need was so great in the midst of these kinds of pains And with a trembling hand with the pencil Torres would write sometimes even lengthy responses to these people So that's when you read them on a page. It looks like they're nice Sedate letters that that was not the case All right to describe the symptoms of the tuberculosis So the bishop says fever and profuse sweating for six months So that does include this may that we're looking at Torres suffered from a fever which fluctuated Sometimes her back was burning like fire Sometimes she was perspiring so much. She became dehydrated Digestive troubles Torres suffered frequently from nausea often losing her meals even before she became bedridden The doctor prescribed milk for her. She had never liked it. She could not digest it She continued to take it forced it down knowing what would happen Respiratory troubles as the tuberculosis spread through the lungs Torres suffered pains first in her right shoulder and arms then in her left side the continual cough emaciation Strikingly when you look at the photos of Torres and this is typical from what I've read about this her face looks unchanged Her face looks healthy and all the photos that you see and in fact This was one reason why many of the sisters didn't really believe she was very ill to look at her She seemed fine So she didn't get a lot of sympathy from many in the Carmel as as she went through this But underneath the habit she was becoming a skeleton Normally the face of a person suffering from tuberculosis takes on certain characteristics, but Torres face remained almost the same Her voluminous Carmelite habit hid her thin thinness and her face was full Only her thin hands betrayed her That's all you could see through the habit and gave the lie to the healthy look and the emaciation itself caused various afflictions weakness powerlessness and distress People suffering from tuberculosis like this obviously would have deep emotional discouragement and depression and pain They did the prodigious remedies customary at the time but ridiculous today do anything to alleviate all this suffering Basically the answer to that is no that they really didn't do much Right, that's and of course add to this that Torres is in the heart of the spiritual darkness at this point Which is centered on? This sense powerful in her that heaven is not real that when we die everything is over and She is making more acts of faith as she'll say than ever in her life at this point She writes these lovely poems about eternal life the sisters comment on it and she says I am writing about what I wish to believe So she is this is a martyrdom, you know This is a passion that Torres is going through and that's the context of this letter that she's writing So this is the second Person this case already ordained a priest that she was asked to accompany spiritually and it was a father Adolph Rulong Who was destined for the missions in China where he actually spent 13 years? He stopped by the Carmel at one point can't say that he and Torres actually saw each other because the grill was in between Although they tried to work it so that Torres was the last one.
Fresh update on "marie" discussed on Bloomberg Surveillance
"Go into the south part of Gaza so let's talk about policy for a lot of people from the outside looking in there there is a clear and obvious division within this government between the president and perhaps within people within the state department and really that's just the government and then you've got a massive split in within Congress the Democratic Party so can you talk to me how on earth we come up with any kind of agreement early next year to give aid to Israel to give aid to Ukraine what is that going to look like in the next few months yeah it's a great question and we heard Admiral Kirby talk about this because really for Ukraine they would need something to be done before January before it starts to become a little bit more of a dire situation for Ukraine because those funds that the president can draw down on are dwindling you know we don't have a vote yet in the Senate the Senate is working on a more a package that would encompass all the foreign policy concerns but it would have to also include something on the US southern border and the thinking here is the way you can get more individuals in Congress to sign up for aid to Ukraine is to make sure that there is work that's being done and aid sent to the US southern border but the timeline is tricky I mean the the biggest biggest story for Congress today is going to be whether or not they expelled George Santos, the representative from New York's third district they but don't have a lot of time left so if this lingers into early next year it could be quite problematic the other big debate when it comes to Israel in Congress is whether or not they want conditions to attached that aid that the president asked to send. AMH, appreciate the update. Tana Washington DC, Marie, Anne more from AMH through today on Bloomberg TV and on Bloomberg Radio. Bramo, before we get lost in the glitz of a presidential election next year, before we get there, all the headlines, all the attention, the big crowds, we've got to focus on making policy at the start of next year, got to find some kind of agreement overspending, good luck. Some kind of agreement over sending aid to Israel, given a split within the president's party, that's going to be difficult. And then some kind of agreement over providing aid to Ukraine, which is a war which Hannah gets talked about now in this country, given what's happening elsewhere. You know, this is sort of the unspoken secret, but very very well known by everyone, that in all of these campaigns, the uglier and more contentious they've gotten year after year, nothing's actually getting done in terms of moving forward certain important policies, including, for example, coming up with actually good cost cutting that can reduce the deficit, that comes up with a coherent foreign policy, that a lot of people, critical mass can get on board. And it raises this question, especially with a house that's been in disorder, and it still sort of has tenuous leadership, a question of what can get through, right, at this point. So yes, you point. raise a We have to get things done. But do we? Because it still hasn't been a problem going back. I mean, it's just sort of a can of exercise picking for a number of years. Deficit problems don't go away just because rates have gone from five to four. They just They're a lot less, though. I know, I hear you. But the numbers are massive. They are massive. They're massive. And they're not necessarily going to be making cuts anytime soon. And the truth is, whether it's Democrat or whether it's Republican, any kind of proposal that comes out to cut costs, nothing actually addresses the main cost absorbers. So it's not clear that there's going to even be the conversation unless there is some sort of bipartisan effort to really tackle this head on. Granted, it's better that it's not at five.

A highlight from LST8 Casting Flowers The Letters of St. Therese of Lisieux with Fr. Timothy Gallagher Podcast
"Discerninghearts .com in cooperation with the Oblates of the Virgin Mary presents The Letters of Saint Therese of Lisieux with Father Timothy Gallagher. Father Gallagher is a member of the Oblates of the Virgin Mary, a religious community dedicated to retreats and spiritual direction according to the spiritual of exercises Saint Ignatius of Loyola. He is featured on several series found on the Eternal Word television network. He is also author of numerous books on the spiritual teachings of Saint Ignatius of Loyola and the Venerable Bruno Lanteri, founder of the Oblates of the Virgin Mary, as well as other works focused on aspects of the spiritual life. The Letters of Saint Therese of Lisieux with Father Timothy Gallagher. I'm your host, Chris McGregor. This next letter brings us to just about one year before Therese's death, so she's 23 at this point, and it's a letter to Sister Maria of Saint Joseph, who is 38 years old at this point. Let's read a description of Sister Maria of Saint Joseph. She was a very difficult sister. She had a very difficult childhood. There was a goodness in her, but there was also a violent temper, mood swings, and so forth. And because of that, the sisters tended to avoid her. So this is from Marie, Therese's sister, Marie's deposition in the cause of canonization where she describes Sister Marie of Saint Joseph. The sister was subject to the blackest moods and did scarcely any work. I saw her when Sister Therese was already an invalid come to her to call for the week's linen. Therese had volunteered. No one else wanted to approach the sister, and Therese's heart always went out to the difficult people, to the suffering people. You know, Therese is the patron of the missions, and so her gaze reaches out to those who are very distant from her, wanting to bring them close to Christ. But her gaze also fell on those who were the nearest to her, and she saw the needs, and she would approach them with incredible insensitivity. The follow happens. I saw her when Sister Therese was already an invalid come to her to call for the week's linen, which she had given her to repair. And because Sister Therese had not been able to complete her task, the sister reproached her severely instead of thanking her for what she had done in spite of being so ill. So this is Sister Marie of Saint Joseph. Sister Therese took the reproaches as if they were so much praise. This poor unfortunate sister became the object of Sister Therese's tenderest compassion. One day when I had confided to her how much trouble that sister gave me, the servant of God, Therese, said, ah, if you only knew how necessary it is to forgive her, how much she is to be pitied. It is not her fault she is so poorly gifted. She is like an old clock that has to be rewound every quarter of an hour, just so emotionally needy. Yes, it is as bad as that. Well, wouldn't you have pity on it? Oh, how necessary it is to practice charity toward one's neighbor. And Therese also recognized and appreciated the good qualities that Sister Marie of Saint Joseph had, and they're listed here, tenderness, good memory, fine singing voice. And it pained Therese to see Sister Marie of Saint Joseph ostracized by the rest of the community. And so she resolved to move closer to her. I will say that eventually the mental, emotional mood swings and temper and so forth of Sister Marie of Saint Joseph were diagnosed by a doctor as a form of mental disability that was just incompatible with religious life. And so when she was 51, she was obliged to leave the convent. She lived for another 26 years before her death. And she always remembered Therese with fondness, always followed the cause of canonization, stayed in contact with the Carmel. Well, what Therese did, I think we'd have to say pretty heroically, was she volunteered to help Sister Marie of Saint Joseph in the linen room, which was where she worked alone because no one, they were afraid of her. They didn't want to be the subject of her violent temper and the speech and all that would go with it. And we have a series of the just brief notes that Therese writes to Sister Marie of Saint Joseph, sort of childlike, childish almost language. And Therese really takes the role of a mother concerned for Sister Marie. Is she sleeping well? Striving to take that combative spirit which Sister Marie of Saint Joseph has and to move that towards spiritual combat to help her try to offer her struggles and so forth for the good of souls, for the good of the Church. So this is one of these letters that she writes to Sister Marie of Saint Joseph. And you know, this allows us to highlight one of these qualities of Therese. I think we'll return to this later on. When there were suffering difficult people around her, people that everybody else tended to avoid, she was the one who would take the initiative to approach them. I mentioned they had these recreation times twice a day when they could sit together and just freely converse. It was her practice, the others noted it, and you see it in the cause of canonization, to choose to sit next to the ones that nobody else wanted to sit next to. So much so that one of these sisters convinced that Therese was really a great friend, that they were great friends. Therese did this so naturally, so easily, without any sign of struggle. Well, without any sign of struggle, she's the one of whom Therese said, sometimes the only thing I can do is just leave her because it's just too difficult for me, and then she'd come back when she was more able again. So she writes to Sister Marie of Saint Joseph, I am delighted with the little child. Now this is one of these letters where Therese uses the third person and metaphor. If we notice, for example, when she wrote to her childhood playmate Celine, there's none of that kind of language. It's very direct. It's the kind of language her mother would have written. So Therese, depending on the recipient, will adopt a different style of writing, and here it's that third person and metaphor. I am delighted with the little child, which is to say, I'm really happy with what I've seen in you. And the one who carries her in his arms is still more delighted than I. The Lord just loves what he's seen in you. Ah, how beautiful is the little child's vocation. Who else was speaking to Sister Marie of Saint Joseph like this? She was pretty universally simply avoided, and here is this fellow sister just saying, I'm so delighted to see the goodness in you, and Jesus sees it more than I. It is not one mission that she must evangelize, but all missions, and that is offer your struggles and sufferings for the missions for the apostolate of the Church. How will she do this? So how are you, Sister, with your personal struggles in the laundry room, going to offer something for the far -flung missionary work of the Church? And she answers, how will she do this? By loving, by sleeping, because Sister Marie of Saint Joseph had struggles with that, and Therese will often gently hope and encourage her to get the sleep that she needs. And then this next is capitalized, by throwing flowers to Jesus when he is asleep. Now, there's something very profound behind this, this throwing flowers in the Franca, jeté de fleur, which is a phrase that Therese uses often. And let's just take a moment to look at her, describe what she means by this in the story of a soul, because this is a very profound piece of her little way. So the image is, well, Therese did this as a child. They would, on the Corpus Christi procession, she and the other little girls, they'd be dressed in like their white dresses, and they'd be given flowers, and they would cast these flowers into the air along the road before the priest would come by with the Blessed Sacrament. Therese loved flowers. If you read her letters, flowers come back all the time in her writing. One of her joys was that she thought, in entering Carmel, that she was really giving up any contact with flowers, the flowers that she would go with her father and go walking out in the fields, and he'd be fishing, she'd be picking flowers as a little girl. And then to her delight found that people were constantly making gifts of flowers to the Carmel so that flowers were an abundant presence in her life. Well, she says, the little child, meaning herself, will strew flowers. She will perfume the royal throne with their sweet scents, and she will sing in her silvery tones the canticle of love. Now, what she's referring to here is her own sense of her weakness and her imperfections. Here are the great saints. Think of Teresa of Avila and John of the Cross and Francis of Assisi. As she'll say elsewhere, these are the mountain tops, and she sees herself just as a little grain of sand. Her own life is so small. She sees her weakness and her struggles. Well, what can I do then? Well, the little child will throw flowers, will cast flowers upon the throne of the Lord Jesus. So there you get just an image or just a brief perspective on this kind of flowery metaphorical language that Teresa uses. It's always necessary to see what she's saying through that. The language is flowery. It can be sentimental. It can be childish at times, but the reality is rock, is solid, is deep, is rich. So now she explains she's speaking to Jesus. This is in the manuscript B, the second part of the story of the soul. It's now chapter nine. Yes, my beloved, this is how my life will be consumed. I have no other means of proving my love for you other than that of strewing flowers. All right, what does that mean? That is not allowing one little sacrifice to escape, not one look, one word, profiting by all the smallest things and doing them through love. Now, we're right at the heart of her little way here. I can't do great things for you. I'm not in the missions. I'm not being martyred. I haven't written great scholarly works, preached before multitudes. I'm just a humble little 24 -year -old woman living with 20 other women in a caramel that very few people even know of, working in the linen room, preparing meals, helping out in the sacristy, decorating as best I can, sacred objects, painting them. I can't do great things for you, but what I can do is to cast flowers. Now, as I've said so often in these conversations, it doesn't take much contact with Therese to touch the heroic, and it's right here. That is, by not allowing one sacrifice to escape. And her sisters were witness to this, that she, every opportunity that she could find, to go out of her way to help someone, to give up something that someone else wanted, to smile at the last person that she wanted to smile to, and so forth. She took advantage of all of these little occasions. The little way is only little in that the things that we do are ordinary, but it is not little in love, and not little in fruitfulness. It's heroic, actually, in these. What if we could even dream of living like that in our daily life at home or at work or in the parish or in the community, not allowing one little sacrifice to escape? I have a task to do. Here's a person who approaches me with a little sinking of my heart. He or she is going to want some time. What if we didn't allow one even smallest sacrifice to escape? Not one look that could encourage another person.
Fresh update on "marie" discussed on Bloomberg Surveillance
"6 a .m. Eastern on Bloomberg context changes everything you're trolling folks and trying to find migrants to play political games try to get some news intention so you can out -Trump Trump and by the way how's that going for you Ron you're down 41 points in your own home state he's just throwing stuff out to see what sticks against the wall this is a slick slippery politician whose state failing is people are leaving his state and he's trying to run interference for his failure there's one thing in closing that we have in common is neither of us will be the nominee for our party in 24 what a debate yesterday evening a sharp debate on Fox News governor Gavin Newsom of California governor Ron Ron DeSantis of Florida facing Garth joining us now down in Washington DC Bloomberg's Anne -Marie MH you sat through it all walk us through what stood out for you well I think the first thing that there's a lot of mud slinging between these two individuals but I think that the key part of what Newsom wanted to drive when he did it right at the opening there is he wanted to bury Ron DeSantis as being the Republican candidate so really he was carrying a lot of water for Biden and Harris kind of going into enemy territory here because he was on Fox News even though he has some kind of special relationship I think with Sean Hannity and you've alluded to this as well John these two seem to like each other and Newsom's actually the one that I believe was at a least year ago called for the debate saying I'm happy to debate you Governor DeSantis so when he said neither of us will be the candidate for 2024 that was really the first shot thrown but they covered a lot of topics which we don't normally get in the presidential debates because there's so many people on stage and they're all trying to vie for their moment to shine or to have this breakout moment here they covered everything from abortion to taxes the economy, crime, immigration didn't exactly get a ton of upset and debate more just I don't like the way you're doing it and trying to defend their records but potentially we'll see more of these and I think gives a little bit more insight of what we can see maybe in 2028. A credit to Sean Hannity for making it happen first of all Anne -Marie to your point on governor DeSantis what did he get out of last night going forward and trying to take on the former president so going into this I really thought that Newsom it was a win -win he's going to enemy territory so people on his side of the camp Democrats will say this is great he's out there fighting the good fight for the Biden -Harris administration and their campaign so he looks like a to winner his side and he was elevated by the fact that governor DeSantis is not just a governor he's a presidential nominee in some polls he's second to former President Donald Trump but I so it felt like DeSantis was elevating Newsom he didn't have to do that why was he going on a level with someone who's not presidential even a candidate but I think for governor DeSantis this was a moment where he wasn't fighting other Republicans on stage to get his voice heard he had a lot more time to explain his positions and speak directly to audience an that he wants to go out to vote of course it comes six weeks before Iowa where he spent of a money ton and a ton of political capital and time to try to win that primary do they speak about foreign policy at all foreign policy didn't really come up a little bit when it comes to what's going on in Israel and the Americans there but I would say this was framed by Sean to Hannity be a domestic debate it was about red states versus blue states and I'm wondering if potentially we'll see or maybe governor Abbott debating Gretchen Whitmer who knows but it really was about how you do govern your state and the policies you're putting in place and it started with and I was preparing for this to start with because this is what Sean Hannity started his sit down with Gavin Newsom prior it was about the the migration we've seen out of California people leaving California which for the first time ever happened in 2020 and of course Gavin Newsom became governor in 2019. The reason why I ask Ann Marie is partly because seems like President Biden is fighting in his race much more on a foreign policy perspective right now there seems to be a real shift in tone when comes it to Tony Blinken what he said to Israel over the weekend now what we see in terms of what the US is saying about Israel's actions in the reignited conflict in the reignited war between Hamas and Israel what do you make of that and how much is that really kind of where President Biden is in terms of how he moves his campaign forward? Well this is what the administration has to deal with less so the campaign at the moment but the administration is dealing with two conflicts in the world right now and obviously you have Secretary of State in the Middle East and you have a resumption of the fighting so that the pauses we see the tactical pauses or truce whatever you will the for week for a week long that we've seen hostages out of Israel and prisoners hostages out of Hamas's control back to Israel and prisoners in Israel being freed that has come to end an so this is obviously going to be front and center for this administration and it's a good point Lisa we did see a much tougher tone from Secretary of State Antony Blinken Nick Wadham said to me yesterday it almost was like he was airing to the press that he had read the riot act to Israel's war cabinet saying the mass amount of civilians we saw in the north cannot be done as it is widely expected for Israelis the to
A highlight from LST7 The Personality of St. Therese The Letters of St. Therese of Lisieux with Fr. Timothy Gallagher Discerning Hearts Podcast
"Discerninghearts .com in cooperation with the Oblates of the Virgin Mary presents the letters of Saint Therese of Lisieux with Father Timothy Gallagher. Father Gallagher is a member of the Oblates of the Virgin Mary a religious community dedicated to retreats and spiritual direction according to the spiritual exercises of Saint Ignatius of Loyola. He is featured on several series found on the eternal word television network. He is also author of numerous books on the spiritual teachings of Saint Ignatius of Loyola and the venerable Bruno Lanteri founder of the Oblates of the Virgin Mary as well as other works focused on aspects of the spiritual life. The letters of Saint Therese of Lisieux with Father Timothy Gallagher. I'm your host, Chris McGregor. This is now Bishop Guy Gaucher. Anything that he's written is well worth reading. He is just a very very fine scholar of Therese. The bishop goes on, we have here an inexhaustible source of study. She whom we customarily call Saint Therese of the Virgin Mary was able to say at the moment of her death that the foundation of her whole piety was nourished on the text of Isaiah chapter 53 concerning the suffering servant. When we mutilate her name we mutilate her message to say nothing of her entire life and so when you give her the name that she wanted and keep in that name Therese of the Child Jesus of the Holy Face and our whole conception of Therese changes and the suffering that's a thread through everything that we're speaking about here is understood. Wow. Mutilate her name. I won't be doing that anymore. Yes, that said rather strongly, isn't it? Wow, it really is. It's so true. We don't have to over exaggerate that either. To speak of Therese of the Child Jesus captures a real deep truth about who she is and I don't think we need always to feel literally obliged to give the entirety of the name. But to recognize that there is another piece in the name and it is a foundational even the central piece helps us keep Therese in perspective. The childlike element without the suffering would risk remaining sentimental. When you put the two together as they were so profoundly put together in Therese anything sentimental disappears. I don't mean the warmth, the spontaneity, the delight, the joy, all of that which goes with a childlike spirit you know and Jesus says that to enter the kingdom we need to be like children. All of that remains but it is rooted in a very profoundly lived way of the cross you know that that gives it depth and maturity. If we rely on the testimony of Mother Agnes, that's her sister Pauline, given at the beatification process we have good reason to call her sister Therese of the Holy Face. Mother Agnes stated, Devotion to the Holy Face was the servant of God's, she was not yet venerable at this point, was the servant of God's special attraction, devotion to the Holy Face. As tender as was her devotion to the Child Jesus it cannot be compared to her devotion to the Holy Face. So all of that underlies what we've seen. I cannot tell you all I would like. My soul is powerless. If only I could but no this is not in my power. Why be sad? Do you not always think what I am thinking? I can't share everything with you the way I would wish to but don't let that be a sadness. I know that you already know everything in my heart. When they were younger girls together there was a time when they would go up in the call it the attic room of their home at Les Buissonné and together they would look out the window. The home was on a raised kind of a hill and so there was a broad panorama before them of the city and then off into the distance and they would sit there for hours just speaking about spiritual things and that was probably the moment when they were closest together. Therese compares those conversations to that conversation that Augustine has with his mother, remember at Ostia, before their death when time just disappears and they even touch eternity in some way as they speak. They were so deeply united in this at that time. She says I know that you know everything I'm thinking. Thus all I do not tell you you divine you understand. Jesus makes you feel it in your heart. Has he not moreover set up his abode there to console himself for the crimes of sinners? Yes it is there in the intimate retreat of the soul that he instructs us together and one day he will show us the day which will no longer have any setting. Happy feast. How sweet it will be one day for your Therese to wish it to you in heaven. As I said that perspective is is always there in Therese. This next is a brief selection from a description of Therese written by her novice mistress who was a Sister Marie of the Angels and Therese at this point is 20 years old and it's kind of classic you'll find it quoted often in writing on Therese. Sister Therese of the child Jesus 20 years old novice and jewel of the Carmel. It's dear Benjamin. Office of painting. So that's what Therese is doing at this time. She would decorate stoles or they had her do different things in the chapel and so on. Therese never had any training in painting. At one point her sister Selene who was the most gifted in this of all the sisters her Pauline also painted and wrote poetry and did some plays and things but Selene was the best of them as a painter and the first images of Therese really all come from paintings of Selene that Selene did of her. At one point she did a painting of Our Lady and she brought it to their father to see and it's really pretty remarkable for somebody that age and with the limited training that she'd had and he was so impressed by it that he proposed to Selene that she go to Paris and take lessons from an accomplished artist in painting and Selene said no to that because she already had it in mind that she wanted to enter the Carmel but as a sideline on that while this conversation was going on their father turned to Therese and said would you also like instruction in painting which Therese would have wanted in the worst way. You know for somebody who had no training in painting other than a certain amount that Selene showed her she does pretty well. I mean she's not a great painter but with training probably could have become as good as Selene perhaps. That's just a guess but certainly better than she was and she would have given anything for it. Her sister Marie I mentioned earlier could be blunt and sometimes didn't always see things well and she just spoke up quickly before Therese could even answer and just said no she doesn't have the same talent as Selene it would just be a waste of time and resources to do that and Therese didn't say anything and she just bore it you know she didn't speak up for herself so she never had the training in the painting that Selene had and that was Therese. She simply bore it but nonetheless at this point she is painting in the Carmel. She never had tasks which would involve heavy physical expenditures of energy you know heavy lifting and those kinds of things she just wouldn't have had the health for that sort of thing. She did help with the haying and those kinds of things. Office of painting in which she excels without having had other lessons than those of seeing our Reverend Mother her dear sister at work so Pauline actually. Tall Therese was I've seen five three five four but she was the tallest of the sisters. Tall and strong with the appearance of a child a tone of voice and expression hiding within her a wisdom of perfection a perspicacity of a 50 year old. In fact some of the sisters said that if it weren't for her age they would have willingly seen her as prioress of the Carmel just in terms of her maturity. Also the fact that she was one of a group of four sisters which was divisive within the community that was not an easy thing for the remainder of the community to have this block of family members like this. Soul always calm and in perfect possession of itself in all things and with everybody. Little innocent thing to whom one would give God without confession to receive communion there'd be no need for confession. But one whose head is full of mischief to play on anyone she pleases and these are the lines which are all often quoted mystic comic everything she can make you weep with devotion and just as easily split your sides with laughter during our recreations. After a lunch and supper there was a time when they would break silence and they would just sit together in the common space and they might be sewing or doing different things but in free conversation together. And they would say when Therese would not be there they'd say we are not going to laugh today. You know she was a mimic she could split people's sides with laughter with her imitations of people. For example she imitated their guide on that pilgrimage in Italy. Different things like that always kindly you know they always immediately say never in a but she could do this so well that she'd have them all just splitting their sides with laughter puns too. We lose these in English but in some of her sayings she'll respond lightning quick to something with a pun that once you uncover it and see what she's saying you just laugh you know. Maybe we're spoiled by all the pictorial representations of all the pictures of her but I have yet to see a picture of Saint Therese smiling. A full smile teeth laughing they're always the very serious very almost sedate nature of a picture of her. Well there is one reason at least for that and that is if you look at the photographs we're really blessed that Celine when she entered Celine was sort of into things like this you know painting and so on and she also got into photography and was allowed to bring her camera into the Carmel which is why we have the photographs of Therese that we have. But the way pictures were taken at the time it was a nine -second exposure so you will always see people very rigid and unmoving and their faces sort of immobile in all of these pictures and that's why in none of them do you see the smile which was the habitual expression on Therese face as the various witnesses all testify.

"I gotta say Camille, as you're describing this, I'm thinking, you're kind of, you're like forging a career path that I don't think existed before. I really don't. So, how does that feel? Or do you realize that you really truly are leading, you know, the path on this? And this is incredible. I don't really think about it in that terms because I feel like I have so much to still do. I just want to always, like I say, I want to forge your head because, you know, it's past, like, we want to break through those glass ceilings, but, you know, but the sky is the sky. I just keep pushing myself so everybody from behind me, so I can take your hand and your hand and your hand and help pull you up because it shouldn't be like, it shouldn't be one or two of us as black women who are doing, you know, doing, you know, a movie and doing big budget. We should have 15, 20, 100 black people who are in hair and makeup who are doing, you know, $100 million movies and more. So we have to elevate not only what we do, our skill levels, and just elevate ourselves as people to play on that field. Well, it's like I get to wake up early and have a cup of coffee and breakfast with my favorite two folks in the whole wide world every day. That's Nicole Marie and Michael Hoskins, and I'm Carrie Hines right here on the All Known Share Radio Morning Show. And you get to do the same thing. We start from 6 a.m. Eastern, 5 Central time. Take the show all the way to 9 o'clock in the morning here in New York live. Always make it a great day. All right, Siobhan this year, it is my great honor to bring you back to the show today from Ruth Ross Salon in West Orange, New Jersey. Good morning again to you. Good morning. Good morning and thanks for having me on today. Okay, it's my pleasure. Listen, I want to jump right on in on this topic. This is something that's been very big and it's been kind of weighing on me as a topic I wanted to cover on the broadcast. And so it's really easy. It's all about kind of preserving the look as far as the clients go once they leave your chair. So today's topic talk with Siobhan this year and Carrie Hines is how to make sure that the style that you just received at your favorite hair salon lasts after you've left the salon. Okay, and this can also lend itself to after you leave the barbershop. So these are some great at-home tips or some aftertears that we can talk about. So let's kind of get started. Okay, first of all, Siobhan this year, my question to you, when clients come into the shop are they necessarily thinking about aftercare or are they just in the moment and just want to look good when you put that mirror in front of them and they say, oh wow.

The letters of Saint Therese of Lisieux with Father Timothy Gallagher. I'm your host, Chris McGregor. This next letter brings us to just about one year before Therese's death so she's 23 at this point and it's a letter to Sister Maria of Saint Joseph who is 38 years old at this point. Let's read a description of Sister Maria of Saint Joseph. She was a very difficult sister. She had a very difficult childhood. There was a goodness in her but there was also a violent temper, mood swings and so forth and because of that the sisters tended to avoid her. So this is from Marie, Therese's sister Marie's deposition in the cause of canonization where she describes Sister Marie of Saint Joseph. This sister was subject to the blackest moods and did scarcely any work. I saw her when Sister Therese was already an invalid come to her to call for the week's linen. Therese had volunteered, no one else wanted, to approach the sister and Therese's heart always went out to the difficult people, to the suffering people. You know Therese is the patron of the missions and so her gaze reaches out to those who are very distant from her wanting to bring them close to Christ but her gaze also fell on those who were the nearest to her and she saw the needs and she would approach them. With incredible insensitivity the follow happens. I saw her when Sister Therese was already an invalid come to her to call for the week's linen which she had given her to repair and because Sister Therese had not been able to complete her task the sister reproached her severely instead of thanking her for what she had done in spite of being so ill. So this is Sister Marie of Saint Joseph. Sister Therese took the reproaches as if they were so much praise. This poor unfortunate sister became the object of Sister Therese's tenderest compassion. One day when I had confided to her how much trouble that sister gave me the servant of God Therese said, ah if you only knew how necessary it is to forgive her how much she is to be pitied. It is not her fault she is so poorly gifted. She is like an old clock that has to be rewound every quarter of an hour just so emotionally needy. Yes it is as bad as that. Well wouldn't you have pity on it? Oh how necessary it is to practice charity toward one's neighbor. And Therese also recognized and appreciated the good qualities that Sister Marie of Saint Joseph had and they're listed here. A tenderness, good memory, fine singing voice. And it pained Therese to see Sister Marie of Saint Joseph ostracized by the rest of the community and so she resolved to move closer to her. Oh we will say that eventually the mental emotional mood swings and temper and so forth of Sister Marie of Saint Joseph were diagnosed by a doctor as a form of mental disability that was just incompatible with religious life. And so when she was 51 she was obliged to leave the convent. She lived for another 26 years before her death and she always remembered Therese with fondness, always followed the cause of canonization, stayed in contact with the with the Carmel. Well what Therese did I think we'd have to say pretty heroically was she volunteered to help Sister Marie of Saint Joseph in the linen room which was where she worked alone because no one, they were afraid of her. They didn't want to be the subject of her violent temper and the speech and all that would go with it. And we have a series of the just brief notes that Therese writes to Sister Marie of Saint Joseph at this time and I'm only going to read one of them and they're in sort of childlike childish almost language and Therese really takes the the role of a mother concerned for Sister Marie. Is she sleeping well? Striving to take that combative spirit which Sister Marie of Saint Joseph has and to move that towards spiritual combat to help her try to offer her struggles and so forth for the good of souls, for the good of the church. So this is one of these letters that she writes to Sister Marie of Saint Joseph and you know this allows us to to highlight one of these qualities of Therese. I think we'll return to this later on. When there were suffering difficult people around her, people that everybody else tended to avoid, she was the one who would take the initiative to approach them. I mentioned they had these this recreation times twice a day when they could sit together and just freely converse. It was her practice the others noted it and you see it in the cause of canonization to choose to sit next to the ones that nobody else wanted to sit next to. So much so that one of these sisters convinced that Therese was really a great friend, that they were great friends. Therese did this so naturally, so easily without any sign of struggle, well without any sign of struggle. She's the one of whom Therese said sometimes the only thing I can do is just leave her because it's just too difficult for me and then she'd come back when she was more able again. So she writes to Sister Marie of Saint Joseph, I am delighted with the little child. Now this is one of these letters where Therese uses the third person and metaphor. If we notice, for example, when she wrote to her childhood playmate Celine, there's none of that kind of language. It's very direct. It's the kind of language her mother would have read. So Therese, depending on the recipient, will adopt a different style of writing and here it's that third person and metaphor. I am delighted with the little child which is to say I'm really happy with what I've seen in you and the one who carries her in his arms is still more delighted than I. The Lord just loves what he's seen in you. Ah, how beautiful is the little child's vocation. Who else was speaking to Sister Marie of Saint Joseph like this? She was pretty universally simply avoided and here is this fellow sister just saying I'm so delighted to see the goodness in you and Jesus sees it more than I. It is not one mission that she must evangelize but all missions and that is offer your struggles and sufferings for the missions for the apostolate of the Church. How will she do this? So how are you, sister with your personal struggles in the laundry room, going to offer something for the far -flung missionary work of the Church? And she answers, how will she do this? By loving, by sleeping because Sister Marie of Saint Joseph had struggles with that and Therese will often gently hope and encourage her to get the sleep that she needs.

"Discerninghearts .com in cooperation with the Oblates of the Virgin Mary presents The Letters of Saint Therese of Lisieux with Father Timothy Gallagher. Father Gallagher is a member of the Oblates of the Virgin Mary, a religious community dedicated to retreats and spiritual direction according to the spiritual exercises of Saint Ignatius of Loyola. He is featured on several series found on the Eternal Word television network. He is also author of numerous books on the spiritual teachings of Saint Ignatius of Loyola and the venerable Bruno Lanteri, founder of the Oblates of the Virgin Mary, as well as other works focused on aspects of the spiritual life. The Letters of Saint Therese of Lisieux with Father Timothy Gallagher. I'm your host, Chris McGregor. Let me read one more citation with regards to the Little Way, and this is from a letter written by Sister Marie of the Trinity. Sister Marie of the Trinity was one of those five novices that Therese assisted during her last years. A friendship developed between them. When Marie entered, she was three years younger than Therese. For the first time, Therese was not the youngest in the monastery anymore. Marie had entered a Carmel in Paris. It had not worked out. She had returned home and was now making a second try in the Carmel at Lisieux. And she was not an entirely easy character. She's a wonderful woman. You get to like her as you get to know her, but she could be rambunctious, difficult in this time in Carmel, and without Therese, hell probably would not have. And Marie developed a great love for Therese, was one of the witnesses to her life. And at this point, it's years after Therese's death, and she's writing to another sister. And in the letter, she refers to the Little Way of Therese. You see, the way to be happy on the Little Way of Therese is to abandon yourself to God and to think of yourself as little as possible, not even to seek keeping an account of whether you make progress or not. Am I doing better? Don't worry about any of that. That's not our business. Here is the practical. This is where the Little Way leads in terms of how we live our life. What do we need to do then to live the Little Way? Well, we can almost predict at this point, given what we've already said about heroism in the small daily things, we have only to try to perform all the little acts of daily life with the greatest possible love. And there it is. And that's why I say the Little Way, far from being a settling for less, is a freeing of the heart to be heroic in what God has given most of us every day of our lives, and that's the small daily things that we're called to do. And to do these with the greatest possible love. Actually, it was Sister Marie of the Trinity, when she was a novice, who at one point was sort of languidly walking across the courtyard from one place to another, to whatever her next task was, and Therese saw it. She said to her, no. Is that the way we take care of our children? Go with energy to the next task. Spiritual children, she meant it, for whom their lives are meant to be a sacrifice and to bless through their prayer and their sacrifice. We have only to perform all the little acts of daily love with the greatest possible love. To recognize humbly, but without sadness, our thousand imperfections, which are always resurfacing. I missed it again. There was a child who asked my help, and I just was impatient and didn't have time, or whatever it might be, which are always resurfacing. And to ask God with confidence, with confidence, ask God grace to transform them into love. I'm going to read that again because I think that that one sentence is about as good a description of the little way in practice as we will ever find. We have only, so we have only to try to perform all the little acts of daily life with the greatest possible love. To recognize humbly, so the little way is humble, we recognize our limitations. But without sadness, our thousand imperfections, and sometimes that's the way it feels, you know, again and again, and this and that, our thousand imperfections, which are always resurfacing, and they are. And to ask God, so it's his strength, not ours, to ask God with confidence to transform those imperfections into love. So that's the little way, or that's what she's referring to, you know, in this letter to Father Rulong when he's in China, and it's obviously very central and very deep to the entirety of her message. So the little way in some regards, we've talked in previous conversations, Father Gallagher, about the big three, be aware, understand, take action. Really the little way is the little three, straight, short, and new, straight, short, and new, and that is a practice that we all can undertake every single day. So often we want to dive more into knowing God, like you said, the desires. We might have a desire to undertake Bible studies and to enter into parish programs and missions, I'm going to pray more, I'm going to fast more, I'm going to do all those things, and those in themselves are not necessarily a bad thing. But sometimes when we take on too much, it can be discouraging.
A highlight from S17E8: Why People Cheat w/ Dr. Nicolle Zapien
"Hi, I'm Yui Xu, and I'm Julie Krafcik. We're active daters turned dating sociologists here to dive into everything modern dating and relationships. Welcome to the datable podcast. Hi, datables. So good to have you all back with another episode of in case you didn't know, it's datable when we talk about dating. Julie, your trip to Mexico looked like so much fun. Oh, my God, it was amazing. I am having a hard time being back. I'll just say that. But we got out right in the nick of time, though, because there was a stage four hurricane that came through right after we left like the day after. And I shared that I went down because my friend has been there with her partner and she sent me a video of their balcony. They like had a hole through the roof because it was so crazy. So yeah, so you could have been stranded. Oh, totally. One more day we got out right in time. But it was an incredible trip. It was so relaxing. Just what I needed, you know, just beaches. We did a taco tour that was really fun. My partner and I ended up being the only ones on the tour. Shout out to Ricky or as he said, Ricky Martin to remember him. He was our tour guide. He was amazing. And then we also did a snorkeling. We did hidden beach, historically and hidden beach excursion. You had told me to do this and you were like, I even went with my ex. And it was amazing. I know, like the one thing I remember from that trip was the hidden beach. It was super cool. Like for anyone that's unaware, it's like it's an island. And then it's a very small beach, but you have to swim to get into it. They limit the amount of people that can go through every day. So it's never guaranteed that you can get on. But like it was basically like in our time slot, we like 30 minutes once we got there was just our tour group. Yeah, it's so clean. It's so peaceful. Just kind of a cool little like out of this world experience. You're like, whoa, you can swim into this thing. It's kind of like a cave but open top. I don't know. It's strange. And last week, you know, you asked me I talked about the trip and you asked me like what it would be like to go on a couple's trip. And I didn't know but it ended up working out really well. I think too, because they had their home base. So there were nights that my partner and I just like went off and did our thing and let them do their normal routine. But then there were also times where we think we hung out together. And then we also all went away for the weekend, like at an all inclusive hotel. So that kind of felt like we were doing vacation a little more together. But that was fun in a different way. So I think all said and done. It was a great balance. And you know, I was just like reflecting about this. And I put up an Instagram post. But I just remember like explicitly having this conversation with my friend that I went to see when it was like, you know, during COVID, we didn't go on like a far trip, we went to Carbelle because it was, you know, in the time that you couldn't really travel when restrictions had lifted enough that we felt like we could leave. And we went to Carbelle and we had a great time, like a great time. But I remember like her being like, Oh, you know, like, it's so nice. All these couples are here. Like one day, like, I want to do that. And I'm like, we will, we're gonna go on a couple's trip. Like it's gonna happen, you know? Here you are. Exactly. Like, I think there's something so magical, though, about that. It could feel so far off when you're in it. And then one day it just happens. And it's not. And you look back on that day. And you're like, Oh, yeah, of course, that would eventually happen. And I think both trips were really fun in different ways. So just a reminder, too, that it's like, wherever you are right now is a good place to be in. You'll move to a different stage at some point. It's not a rush that we think it is. Yes, because you got to enjoy where you are today. Because this this moment won't last that long. I met up with two girlfriends in Athens. And they were like, this may be our last trip before we find our husbands. And I was like, No, don't don't let this don't feel like this is the layover to a relationship so that you can go on trips with your partner. They're so different and you get a different experience. And it's, it's good to have both. Totally have to keep that in mind. Right? Yeah. Yeah. And I don't mean to say this, like, I can never go on a girl's trip alone ever again. Because clearly, it's not the case. I just did two of them, like the weekends prior. So that is not the case at all. But it's more just like where you are today might very well change really quickly. It usually does, you know, it's never a set. This is forever. So if you're feeling down about where you are, in a year, things might look completely different. Yeah, it's not an either or no, I can't just be like, oh, this no more girls trips when I'm in a relationship. I don't know relationship trips when I'm single, like, no, anything could happen any day. Yeah, anywhere, anytime. That is true. And I mean, I think that's like a larger thing, too. I mean, all the stuff that's been going on in the world. And again, just like a moment's notice, things can completely shift and change gear. And just some of it has just been so horrific. And I think just wanted to, like, also take a moment to kind of share for you know, our audience that's in this and feeling it because like, I know I am and you know, I don't have family in Israel, I don't have Israeli roots. But like, as a Jewish American, I'm still feeling it and sort of like put it out there to people that like, this is a hard time. So do what you do to self soothe as well. What are you feeling? What are those feelings? I've there was a few points of view that I saw online that really resonated with me because I admit that I'm not well versed in what's happening in Israel and Palestine. Like, I'm not gonna speak to the politics there. I think in general, it's a tragedy, every lot life that is lost in this. It's been really hard, I think, to see groups that are, you know, basically saying that this is like, okay, that these terrorist actions happened. And that's actually really terrifying to me that there's been protests in New York and San Francisco even actively saying like, this is justified. And I think that part's been very scary and terrifying to me. So my take on it is like, at the end of the day, it's a terrorist attack. These are civilians that were at a music festival that do not deserve this and like people being killed and raped, babies being deheaded, like it's the whole bit is horrific. So the humanity of all this, like, it's okay to one not have a stance of the politics because you don't know. And also just to be sad. I think that's okay, too. And that's how I'm feeling right now. Yeah, it's like, I'm definitely not well versed in the politics of it all. But I just feel like from a human humanity level, you could be at a music festival, but you have to fear for your life now from a terrorist attack. You and I were texting back and forth. And we were saying like, I can't believe this is happening in 2023. And these attacks have given permission for more anti -Semitism people to come out and in the US, in cities that are that we live in, which is ridiculous. And for some reason, like, where were these people? They were just hiding out waiting for something like this to happen. And now they think they can go out and wave a Nazi flag on the 405 in Irvine. Like, what the fuck? I know it's happening. I mean, I think that's why it's been really scary. Like, obviously, I don't want to say like, it's been scarier here than it is real. Clearly, that is not the case. But like, it's scary that it's even taking form here, too. Like, that's scary to me as like a Jewish American, too. Yeah. Very, very scary times that we're in. That's for sure. Mm hmm. You know, what's scarier than dating is the real world. Yeah. Well, it definitely puts it perspective, some stuff, doesn't it? Like, I think that's like happened. Like, I've had a few conversations this week with some folks. And it's like, okay, the stuff we're going through, it's we're going through it, you know, like, no one's gonna deny your feelings. But like, when you put it in the larger perspective of what's happening, it almost feels minuscule in a way. I mean, it certainly does. I'm still like, in shock that this is happening today. This is straight up war, where people are getting killed. This is still happening. Yeah. In developed civilization. Yeah, I think like the reading stories of families, and you know, like, there was a story of like, a couple who they basically got killed, and their two, like, 10 month old twins were still they were live, but like, they're gonna grow up without parents now, because of this, you know, it's like, that stuff is really heart wrenching to read. Well, take care, take care of each other, take care of yourself, like you said, and I don't know, there's no fucking solution to any of this just makes me really scared for the future our children are growing up in. Anyways, I'm not sure how we transition off this, but cheating doesn't look like anything compared to this. Actually, yeah, cheating is the least of anybody's worries in the grand scheme of things. Damn, damn, isn't that true, though? It's just like, you could be going through something, you think it's the end of the world. And you look, you pull back and look at what's going on actually going on the world. You're like, no, no, there's other things that are actually ending the world. Like, I'm not saying that this is a good thing at all to have this comparison, but it sure as heck does put things in perspective, that's for sure. Yes. And we are speaking to a cheating infidelity expert, her name is Nicole. And I think it's always good to get a professional perspective on these bad dating behaviors. And infidelity is one that we've been trying to demystify, because obviously, like of what's been happening in my life, but also just we've been curious about this topic for a long time. Why do people cheat? Do they feel guilty? Is there remorse? Is there coming back from cheating? All of those questions, but really the why the why is what we want to peel back on. So this episode truly peels back the layers of the why. Yeah, and a big shout out to Marie Thuan. She's a dating coach and PhD. And she came on the sounding board after dark when we had that talk about dating profiles. But we should look into having her as a guest because she talks a lot about compersion, which is like something that big in the poly community. It's like the joy in others experiencing joy. She talks about like, how you know, you could have that joy that you're partners with someone else, but also experience jealousy, too. It's a very fascinating topic. But she wrote in, I think it was after the episode where I interviewed you about what had happened, we have the call out for guests that could talk about cheating. And she left me a voice memo and was like, I have the perfect person for you. And she sent us to Dr. Zabian. And here we are. That's how we came about with this episode. Even after this episode, I'm still perplexed. I mean, like, after you're you've been in it, there's still so many questions that you feel like my situation was nuanced and this and that. But now that I'm a few months out, I can see I can truly feel sorry for my ex. And I do feel a certain level of compassion and just sadness for him. Coming out of this, like cloud that I've been in, I think anybody who has been the cheater, I hope that once they're able to face what they've done, that they can heal from it because it is also harmful to themselves. And it probably opens Pandora's box to years and years of trauma they've experienced. Yeah, we promise the whole season will not be about cheating. We've definitely had a lot of cheating episodes. But I think even as someone that hasn't been in it, it's a very fascinating topic because my mind is always goes to just like, why? Why would someone do this? Why not just end it? Why, you know, go through this process? And I really like this conversation because it gets into the science behind the why and why, you know, people are prone to cheating. Okay, well, we could go on all day, but we might as well just get into it. So before we do, quick announcements at dateable podcasts. That's where you can find us. Instagram, TikTok, YouTube, pretty much everywhere. That's, that's where we are. Join our Facebook group. We love to connect with people. We have a lot of great discussions there. I was just kind of browsing through the other day. And there's just so many great threads. And I love the conversations where people even like disagree with each other. It's so fascinating. So a lot of really great perspectives in there. People helping each other, supporting one another. It's a great, great quarter of the internet.

"Well, because it's one of those things, I mean, think about this. It's just the kind of thing that sticks in your head. It wraps itself around your brain stem. That is the singing nun. And that was what the record said. The singing nun who has a birthday today. And she would have been, she would have been 90 passed away back in the 80s. But her name was Jean Paul Marie Deckers. She was Belgian and had a number one record there with Dominique in 1963. Boom. There you are. There you are. You know, my sister was a nun. Did you know that about me? I believe in working our way through your family. You have met that. What happened? Well, I don't want to talk about it. I don't have, I didn't have a great relationship with my sister. Well, okay. Sorry. Whoa. Whoa. So it didn't take? I mean, I don't know. Sorry. It's, it's, it's, it's a family thing, you know, and God rest her soul. She passed away and, uh, we were, uh, we difficult, it was difficult, but anyway, when I was a kid growing up and she went off to the convent and everything, when I was a boy, I remember romanticizing her being the nun because that was about the time that sound of music came out. And remember, remember Julie Andrews went off to the convent before she decided to, you know, sully herself with the captain or whatever he was, but the definitive nun imagery for me. And it had to be for you. I was about 10. You were about seven Sally fields, Sally fields, sister, betrayal, the fly, dude, stop it. She was cute. She was really, I always had a thing for Sally field. I did too. This was a gidget. I mean, I was a little, I mean, a little young for the whole gidget thing, but, but yeah, sister betrayal and the flying at some point, executive said, okay, we're going to have a sitcom and the comedy is going to be that she's a nun and she flies and there's something aerodynamic about the things coming off her hat there in the, in the, it's like, okay.

When we see the Fed raise interest rates, the economy tends to evolve in a very similar level. I think a lack of a move higher in rates is enough to give some relief to expertise.

One thing that I felt over the weekend, I couldn't tear myself away from it, as everybody I'm sure feels the same. The lack of clarity was just shocking to me. As time went on, there was just this fog of uncertainty.

The Letters of Saint Therese of Lisieux with Father Timothy Gallagher. I'm your host, Chris McGregor. Welcome, Father Gallagher. Thank you, Chris. We are exploring the beautiful life of Saint Therese through her letters, and where do we find ourselves now? Well, we'll start at the very beginning, the first of Therese letters. This is taken from the first of two volumes in which her complete correspondence is given to us, and we have the letters to Therese, we have Therese's own letters, and we also have other letters from family members or people close to Therese where they write about Therese. So it's a treasure trove, really, of access to Therese in some wonderful ways as her life unfolds through the years of her life. This is extremely well done, as I said earlier. This is an English translation of volumes that were put together as Therese, the centenary of her birth, approached. She was born in 1873. As 1973 approached, the Carmelites, together with various scholars, put together a team to do a complete and critical publication of all of her writings, and absolutely magnificent work was done. And the more the story of a soul and, of course, these letters and others of her writings depend on that exhaustive French edition that was done at the time. So that's the origin of what we have. Just to remind everyone that the letters were placed and brought forward, what, 20 -some years before her being elevated a Doctor of the Church. That's right. As I said earlier in these conversations, I think anyone who has loved the story of a soul, read the other primary sources and wishes there was more, and has a little bit of courage to go through this many pages, that the letters would be the next step if you really want to pursue it. Well, just for kind of fun in a way, we'll start with the very first of Therese's letters. And she is four years old at this time. And her older sister, Pauline, has Therese in her lap. Pauline is writing a letter to a school friend of hers, a young girl named Louise. And Pauline finishes her letter and then holds Therese and guides her as she writes so that Therese can add this little letter to the letter that Pauline has already written to Louise. And so this is the letter. Dear little Louise, I don't know you, but I love you very much just the same. Pauline told me to write you. She is holding me on her knees because I don't know how to hold a pen. She wants me to tell you that I'm a lazy little girl. But this isn't true because I work all day long playing tricks on my poor little sisters. So I'm a little rascal who is always laughing. Adieu, little Louise, I'm sending you a big kiss. Kiss the visitation for me, that is Sister Marie Aloysia, who was the superior, and Sister Louise, the bonzog, so she gets the name wrong, who was the director of the school, for I don't know anyone else signed Therese. So that's just a young girl's letter held by her sister. All right, we're going to cross then a large margin of time for the next letter. We are now 11 years later and an awful lot has happened in Therese's life in the city. On April 9th of 1888, at 15 years, she has entered the Carmel and it is now July 31st when she writes this letter. So she's been in the Carmel about three and a half months. And what she's going to do in this letter, this is a letter to her father, Louis. This will be our first illustration of, again, this remarkable sensitivity in Therese to others and what's in their hearts and what their needs are, and reaching out with such sensitivity and delicacy and tenderness to meet the needs of others. So she is the 16 -year -old writing to her father, but she's really writing for his sake because she knows how painful this separation is for him. We'll read just a little line from a letter that her father wrote. This is one of the few letters of her father that we have. She entered the day later, her father writes to a friend down in Alençon and included in the letter is this. Therese, my little queen, which was his... He had a nickname for each of the girls.

"Discerninghearts .com in cooperation with the Oblates of the Virgin Mary presents the letters of Saint Therese of Lisieux with Father Timothy Gallagher. Father Gallagher is a member of the Oblates of the Virgin Mary a religious community dedicated to retreats and spiritual direction according to the spiritual exercises of Saint Ignatius of Loyola. He is featured on several series found on the eternal word television network. He is also author of numerous books on the spiritual teachings of Saint Ignatius of Loyola and the venerable Bruno Lanteri founder of the Oblates of the Virgin Mary as well as other works focused on aspects of the spiritual life. The letters of Saint Therese of Lisieux with Father Timothy Gallagher. I'm your host, Chris McGregor. Welcome Father Gallagher. Thank you, Chris. We are exploring the beautiful life of Saint Therese through her letters and where do we find ourselves now? Well, we'll start at the very beginning, the first of Therese letters. This is taken from the first of two volumes in which her complete correspondence is given to us and we have the letters to Therese. We have Therese's own letters and we also have other letters from family members or people close to Therese where they write about Therese. So it's a treasure trove really of access to Therese in some wonderful ways as her life unfolds through the years of her life. This is 65 pages, extremely well done as I said earlier. This is an English translation of volumes that were put together as Therese, the centenary of her birth approached. She was born in 1873. As 1973 approached, the Carmelites together with various scholars put together a team to do a complete and critical publication of all of her writings and absolutely magnificent work was done. And the more recent publications that we have of the story of a soul and of course these letters and others of her writings depend on that exhaustive French edition that was done at the time. So that's the origin of what we have. Just to remind everyone that the letters were placed and brought forward what, 20 some years before her being elevated a Doctor of the Church. That's right. As I said earlier in these conversations, I think anyone who has loved the story of a soul read the other primary sources and wishes there was more and has a little bit of courage to go through this many pages that the letters would be the next step if you really want to pursue it. Well, just for kind of fun in a way, we'll start with the very first of Therese's letters. And she is four years old at this time and her older sister Pauline has Therese in her lap. Pauline is writing a letter to a school friend of hers, a woman, a young girl named Louise. And Pauline finishes her letter and then takes Therese, holds Therese and guides her as she writes so that Therese can add this little letter to the letter that Pauline has already written to Louise. And so this is the letter. Dear little Louise, I don't know you, but I love you very much just the same. Pauline told me to write you. She is holding me on her knees because I don't know how to hold a pen. She wants me to tell you that I'm a lazy little girl, but this isn't true because I work all day long playing tricks on my poor little sisters. So I'm a little rascal who is always laughing. Adieu little Louise, I'm sending you a big kiss. Kiss the visitation for me, that is sister Marie Aloysia, who was the superior, and sister Louise, the bonzag, so she gets the name wrong, who was the director of the school, for I don't know anyone else signed Therese. So that's just a young girl's letter held by her sister. All right, we're going to cross then a large margin of time for the next letter. We are now 11 years later and an awful lot has happened in Therese's life in the April 9th of 1888. At 15 years she has entered the Carmel and it is now July 31st when she writes this letter. So she's been in the Carmel about three and a half months and what she's going to do in this letter, this is a letter to her father, Louis. This will be our first illustration of, again, this remarkable sensitivity in Therese to others and what's in their hearts and what their needs are and reaching out with such sensitivity and delicacy and tenderness to meet the needs of others. So she is the 16 year old writing to her father but she's really writing for his sake because she knows how painful this separation is for him. We'll read just a little line from a letter that her father wrote. This is one of the few letters of her father that we have. She writes, a day later, her father writes to a friend down in Alençon and included in the letter is this. Therese, my little queen, which was his... He had a nickname for each of the girls. Marie, for example, was the diamond because she was strong and Pauline was the pearl because she was such a... He was a jeweler. You know, you get jewelers' names and so on. And Therese, he called his queen. Therese, my god alone could demand such a sacrifice. She's often called the Benjamin in the correspondence, the one that's so dear to her father's heart in a way that everyone knew was special. And already two of his daughters have left. Leonie very much is trying. She fails three times but she's trying to enter religious life. And now the one who is dearest to his heart has just left him, gone to the Carmel. God alone could demand such a sacrifice and we really need to hear those words. But he's helping me so powerfully that through my tears my heart abounds with joy. This gives us just a window into the measure of the man. You have that powerful scene where Therese asks his permission to enter the Carmel. It's the preceding Pentecost and, you know, if you go to visit her home in Lisieux, there in the garden behind the house there's a statue that commemorates this. You see her and her father seated on a bench and she is leaning her head against him and she has just told him about entering the Carmel. Maybe we could read this from the story of a soul, just as a background to this letter. So it's very clear to Therese now that she wants to enter the Carmel. She hopes to enter the Carmel at age 15 and she has to ask her father about this. She needs his permission and it's not going to be easy because she knows the bond of love that's there. I chose the Feast of Pentecost as the day to break the news all day long begging the apostles to pray for me, to inspire me with the right words. Shouldn't they help the timid child who was chosen by God to be the apostle of apostles through her prayers and sacrifices in Carmel? I found the opportunity to speak to my dear little father. Often you'll see this little used in the correspondence. It's an endearing diminutive like Johnny, you know, instead of John and so on. So that's the significance of it. It's an endearment. I found the opportunity to speak to my dear little father only in the afternoon after Vespers. He was seated by the well contemplating marvels of nature with his hands joined. The son whose rays had lost their ardor gilded the high tree tops where little birds were joyfully chanting their evening song. You know, when I read this, I'm a writer. This is pretty good writing just as writing to describe a scene. And Therese wrote this in odd moments, seated, sort of half seated on this little kneeling, half kneeling, half seating bench that she would have in her cell just as she got odd moments to do this. And actually there are no erasures, no corrections. She simply wrote. This just was flowing from her as she wrote. But I was struck just by the caliber of her writing, even as writing, you know. Papa's handsome face had a heavenly expression about it, giving me the feeling that peace flooded his heart. Without saying a word, I sat down by his side, my eyes already wet with tears. He gazed at me tenderly and taking my head, he placed it on his heart saying, what's the matter, my little queen, tell me. Then rising as though to hide his own emotion, he walked while still holding my head on his heart. Through my tears, I confided my desire to enter Carmel and soon his tears mingled with mine. He didn't say one word to turn me from my vocation, simply contenting himself with the statement that I was still very young to make such a serious decision. I defended myself so well that with Papa's simple and direct character, he was soon convinced that my desire was God's will. And in his deep faith, he cried out that God was giving him a great honor and asking his children from him. As I say, you can't go very far in this whole story without touching heroism. We continued our walk for a long time and encouraged by the kindness with which my incomparable father received my confidences, my heart poured itself out to him. Papa seemed to be rejoicing with that joy that comes from a sacrifice already made. He spoke just like a saint and I'd love to recall his words and write them down, but all I preserved of them is a memory too sacred to be expressed. What I do recall, however, is a symbolic action my dear king performed, not realizing its full meaning. Going up to a low wall, he pointed to some little white flowers, like lilies in miniature, and plucking one of them, he gave it to me, explaining the care with which God brought it into being and preserved it just to that very day. While I listened, I believed I was hearing my own story. So the little flower, you can you can see it there. So great was the resemblance between what Jesus had done for the little flower and little Therese. I accepted it as a relic and noticed that in gathering it, Papa had pulled all its roots out without breaking them. It seemed destined to live on in another soil more fertile than the tender moss where it had spent its first days. And in fact she kept that flower for the rest of her life. Now that gives us a background to this letter. Her father, with great faith but with deep deep deep human sorrow, has accepted his daughter's vocation to the Carmel and three and a half months earlier saw her essentially for the last time because from then on they could meet in the speak room of the Carmel, but there was a grill between the sisters and the people in the outer parlor so that they at best would see them very faintly. And of course chances simply to be with her in the way that was so dear to both of them were gone at this point. So Therese, knowing her father's suffering, she writes this letter, My dear king, so these are the names they call each other, she is his queen and he is her king. If you knew the pleasure your carp, your monster, which is underlined, gave us. Now as I mentioned earlier, Louis was a great fisherman. He loved to fish and already he at Alençon and later when they went to Lisieux and the his daughter sent to the Carmel, he would bring his catch to these sisters. Part of their life was that they could not eat meat, so they never eat meat, but they could eat fish. So this was a real treat for the sisters in the various convents when he would bring these fish to them. To us it sounds kind of like a simple thing. He caught some fish, he brought them, but it was really quite a treat and something special for the sisters and he would do this routinely. So what pleasure your fish gave us, the dinner was held back for half an hour. Marie of the Sacred Heart, so that's his oldest daughter, made the sauce and it was delicious. It tasted like, and she quotes the French here, La cuisine du monde. It was even better than the sumptuous cuisine d 'italie. And that is not saying little, for what banquets and what company do you remember, little father? So she's referring to the pilgrimage that they made to Rome where they experienced in the various hotels where they stayed, you know, the marvelous cuisine and, you know, the very well -prepared food. And so she is reminding her father of that trip and saying this tasted even better than all of that. But it isn't always that that gives appetite, at least to me, for I haven't eaten so much since I've been in Carmel. I feel that I am entirely in my element, so three and a half months into the Carmel. If Mademoiselle Pauline, friend of the family from Alençon, were here she would say that, quote, I have found my way. Your diamond can't write you. Diamond is their father's nickname for Marie, the oldest, for she is doing the washing. But this doesn't stop her from thinking of you, dear little father. Now you can already see that this letter isn't, as said before, it's entirely other -centered. Very little said about her and what she says about herself is only to put her father at ease to know that things are well with her. And not everything was easy from her. As she says in the story of a soul, when the doors to Carmel opened to her, she opened her arms to receive suffering. And so things were never easy for her, but her whole focus and intention in this letter is to lift up her father's heart. Now she's obviously saying the truth when she says I'm in my element here, profoundly so, but there's no word of any struggles or sufferings that may have been there. She kisses you with her whole heart, and this is Marie, and you know that the heart of your biggest daughter is not little. I think of all you used to say to us frequently, vanity of vanities, all is vanity, vanity of life which passes, etc., probably quoting from the imitation of Christ, which of course quoting from Koheleth, you know, vanity of vanities. Louis knew the imitation well. Therese actually had it basically memorized. It got to be kind of, even before she entered, when they were in the speak room visiting with her older sisters, the others of the nuns would ask her to quote a given passage, and she could do it by memory. She really, really assimilated that book deeply. The more I live, this is a 16 year old, the more I live, the more I find this is true, that all is vanity on this earth. When I think of you, dear little father, I naturally think of God, for it seems to me that it is impossible to see anyone more holy than you on the earth, and that was very sincere. She and all of her sisters really felt that kind of veneration for both parents, actually. When I think that in a week it will be four months since I am in Carmel, I can't get over it. It seems to me that I have always been here, and on the other hand, it seems that my entrance was yesterday, how everything passes. The more I live, dear little father, the more I love you, and that's what she wants above all to convey to. The heart of this father, who she knows, loves her so deeply, and misses her, willingly gave her to God, but not without great sacrifice. I don't know how this can be, but it is the truth, and I wonder what this will be at the end of my life, if I just keep loving you more and more like this. I am very proud of my title of Queen of France and Navarre. I hope to merit it always. Jesus, the King of Heaven, when taking me for himself, has not taken me away from my holy king on earth. Oh no. Always, if my dear little father wills it, and does not find me too unworthy, I shall remain Papa's queen. The bright pearl, which is Louis' nickname for Pauline, the bright pearl hugs you very tightly, underlined. Adieu, and see you soon, dear king. See you soon, because they were allowed weekly visits for a half hour, and he would come. Those would be the occasions in which her father would also make these various gifts to the Carmel. See you, relatively so, because there was the grill in between. And Therese always effaced herself during these visits, as she spoke little, kind of stood, kept to the back, but there was at least that much contact on a weekly basis.

Kerry Hines and Michael Hopkins Reflect as They Approach 900 Episodes
"When I think about how far we have come, on the All New Hair Radio Morning Show, I am just taken aback. We're talking about 900 plus episodes. Wow. So, yeah, so I've gotta say, because you've been with us as the host of the Vet Talk Radio Show. You've done quite a bit of broadcast in your own right of your 30 minute weekly show, the Vet Talk Radio Show. So you understand, probably better than most, how big this is. Oh yeah, very big. So Michael, I'm gonna ask you if you can kind of help us to put it into words. What goes through your mind when you think of this? 900 or 900 plus episodes, that's a lot of a three hour broadcast of the Hair Radio Morning Show. So what kind of goes through your mind, sir? Lots of things, Carrie. One of them is the excitement. It is so exciting to be a part of 900 shows. It is so exciting. A lot of people don't get that opportunity to be a part of something like this. And I'm a part of something like this, and it just blows me away to be a part of something that's just bigger than you, is bigger than me, is just huge. A lot of people do not get that opportunity. No, they don't. They just don't. And Michael, I just want to jump in and say, it feels like you've been with us for all 900 episodes. You fit in with our broadcast. That is almost like you're part of the fabric of the All New Hair Radio Morning Show, because you are. We get to host the show, Michael Hopkins, Carrie Hines, and Nicole Marie. And I've got to say, Michael, you've been with us for hundreds of episodes, literally. And folks have come to expect you every day to have that cup of coffee or a cup of tea first thing in the morning. And it just means something. So is it a surprise that you've done so well fitting into, you know, the hair and beauty format, as we know that you come from a military background, almost the antithesis of hair and beauty, if you will, although there is a lot of commonality and spillover. But is it a big surprise? I would imagine it to be a little bit of a surprise that you kind of fit in and of kind made a lot of this. You know, you've made it your home. What do you think of that, Michael? Yes, Carrie, it is a big surprise, because as you said, I come from a, I guess you'd say, a different world. I come from a military, law enforcement, security, kind of high -level government contracting world. And this is a whole new world for me, the hair and the beauty community. It's a whole new world. And what I'm finding, Carrie, is that I'm enjoying this world.
A highlight from LST2 A Glimpse of Zlie The Letters of St. Therese of Lisieux with Fr. Timothy Gallagher Podcast
"Of the Mary, a religious community dedicated to retreats and spiritual direction, according to the spiritual exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola. He is featured on several series found on the Eternal Word Television Network. He is also author of numerous books on the spiritual teachings of St. Ignatius of Loyola and the venerable Bruno Lanteri, founder of the Oblates of the Virgin Mary, as well as other works focused on aspects of the spiritual life. The Letters of St. Therese of Lisieux with Father Timothy Gallagher. I'm your host, Chris McGregor. Father Gallagher, it seems to me that the way you've described the wonderful home of St. Therese that she was born into, that this really exemplifies what St. John Paul II called the domestic church, that this is an area where in the heart of the family, faith is nurtured, love is nurtured, hope is nurtured, all these virtues are nurtured in this interaction, and yet they're still very much in the world. I mean, they had to be, did they not, to be able to even sustain their businesses, but also to engage with their family and friends, and yet they made a point of creating this space so that their children could be raised in such a beautiful environment. And I'd say there are two components of that. The most important is what they created within the home, and that was that faith, God, Jesus were very much at the center. The five children saw this evidenced in their parents. For example, they would rise to go to 530 Mass every morning at the beginning of these very busy days, and the way they prayed taught their children the faith, their prayers, their esteem for the church, their fidelity to the various devotions, you know, when Lent would come in the various times of the year. God, Jesus, faith was very much at the center of this home, and without strain because it was so authentic in both parents, and the daughters were very much drawn into that and imbibed it as children growing up with the results that are evident. So the main thing was what they created positively within the home, but as we already saw in one of these quotes from the daughters, they were also very careful to exclude any contrary influence from the home. So they were very, very careful about that, so that the daughters grew up with a kind of appropriate and healthy innocence that was not taken away from them by harmful contacts. So much so that when Therese finally, when they were now in Lisieux, she did begin her formal schooling at the Benedictine Abbey run by the sisters at the school there. For the first time, she encountered things like meanness and selfishness and these sorts of things which were unknown to her because the family was this loving family that it was. So you see, the parents concerned to do both things, put God at the center and with care remove the influences that could undermine that. Probably harder today because those influences are so much more invasive, but a parenting that would attempt to create the space in which the faith can be lived deeply rooted. I think for the example of these two parents would want to be attentive to both of those elements. I can't help but recall in the life of Saint Teresa of Jesus, Teresa of Avila, where she says, watch out just from her own experience to be able to guard your children and watch out who their friends are, see the influences because she saw the ill effect in her own life not being protected from that. It seems to be a general consensus, no matter what era we find ourselves in, that this is a basic staple for raising an environment, ideally a healthy family, one that allows God's grace in the fullest form to be able to anoint the family. Would that be a way of saying that? Yes, and this is just a traditional thing in our whole spirituality. If we move it to another notch, not just harmful influences, but bad influences, then we are always invited to avoid the near occasions of sin in our own lives and so on. And I'd say if we're responsible for others, then we need to have an eye out for that to remove those today. So that would mean decisions that the wise parents would make about the internet and phones and tablets and television and social media, all of these kinds of things, which are pretty important today. What we're doing right now with podcasts indicates the richness of what can be done through these means, but they can also be used in a harmful way. And so, especially children growing up obviously would need to be protected from that. When they are not, children are exposed too soon to too much. God's grace can do anything, so anything can be overcome. Nothing is impossible for God. I can do all things and God who strengthens me, as Paul says, but it's harder. So to, well, let's just take an illustration from Therese again, when she is speaking about the image of the flower, which was so, which she used so widely. Of course, she loved flowers very, very much. And the different flowers in the Garden of Sanctity, you have a Saint Mary Magdalene, who is a beautiful flower because of her repentance and holy life after a life of sinfulness. And she says that's a great love of God that he would bring someone out of that and lead a person to such a life of love of God and holiness. But she said it's an even greater love when the parent, the father, seeing the stumbling block and the path of the person removes it before the person gets there. And that's what she is so grateful to for God in her own life. And that's an image, I think, of what a loving father and mother do. And certainly, Therese's parents did that with great care. They were close to their children, they knew their lives, they were available to them, of course, they had very busy lives themselves with their own businesses and everything else, but the children were always loved, the parents were always available when they needed them. And so, because they were that close to them, they were able to help them in that way. Well, let's pick up again with Celine, Therese's sister, Celine, four years older than Therese, speaking about their parents. Eternal life was the dominant concern of my parents. My mother once wrote to Pauline, the second of the daughters, I wanted to have many children so as to rear them for heaven. That sentence itself already says an awful lot about their mother. Whenever one of my little brothers or sisters died, her spirit of faith gave her such energy and she was so consoled by the thought that these little angels were in heaven, that people around her said, quote, it is not worth commiserating with Madame Martin, she does not grieve over the death of her children, which was certainly not the case. If you read her letters, you see the deep, deep pain and sorrow that she had as she watched child after child die so early in life. But her faith sustained her, these have entered eternal life. Both my parents went to early mass every day and received communion as often as they could, both fasted and abstained throughout the whole of Lent, which was the practice until some years ago, the full 40 days. My father was wonderfully kind to his neighbors and never spoke the least evil of them. He made excuses for all their faults and allowed no criticism of them. Above all, he had a great esteem for priests. Our father loved his children very much. He had an almost maternal love for us. In fact, after the death of their mother, his daughters became almost simultaneously paternal and maternal. We, for our part, had an affectionate reverence for him that almost amounted to worship. He was especially fond of Therese, whom he called his little queen, but we found that quite natural and we're not at all jealous. Besides, we were conscious of the fact that at heart he loved us all equally, nor did Therese take advantage of this affection for her own ends and so forth." So that's just a little word about both parents. Nice start. Well, let's move now to her mother's letters. This particular letter is from two years before Zélie's death, and it's a letter to her sister, who there was a great closeness and love between Zélie and her sister. Her sister entered religious life and was a nun at the visitation convent at Le Mans, which was, oh, maybe 50 miles or so away from Alençon. As I say, there was a deep bond between them. Unfortunately, this is the one letter of Zélie to her sister that has been preserved. It would have been a treasure to have the rest of these. Now, this is two years before her death. Her cancer is not really in the picture at this. She's aware that something's not right, but it's not impeding anything. It's not serious at this point. And she has just been to Lisieux to visit with her daughters, to visit her brother Isidore and her sister -in -law Céline. And she's describing this visit, Sister Marie d 'Ocité, which was the name in religion of Azélie's sister. I was delighted by our trip to Lisieux. Now, see what I mean about ordinary? This is a mother and her daughters who have been taking her daughters to visit their uncle and aunt. I have a sister -in -law who has a kindness and sweetness that are incomparable. And you know, as you read these letters and get to know Thérèse's aunt Céline Guerin, her uncle Isidore's wife, you really, you can't help but really come to appreciate her. She really does seem to have been a very, very warm and loving and good person. And a deep friendship developed between Céline and her sister -in -law Céline. Marie, that's the oldest of the daughters, says that she doesn't know her to have any faults. And neither do I. I find that Isidore, in spite of all his problems and business struggles and so forth, is very happy to have such a wife. It would take a long time to tell you her virtues, but that will be for later. I assure you that I love her as much as a sister. She seems to feel the same way and shows my children an almost maternal affection. As I mentioned, in fact, Céline would ask Céline, her sister -in -law, to take over the maternal role after her own untimely death. She showed them every possible attention and did everything to make our lives pleasant. If I seemed worried, she looked at me with sympathy to seem to hurt her. Marie quickly came over to say to me, Mama, please look more cheerful. My aunt thinks you're sad, and she's hurt over it. I answered her, leave me alone. I can't do better. And I reproached myself for it. One day we were in the countryside, so they take them out into the country outside of Lisieux. I went there reluctantly to accompany the others. Then we settled in a meadow to rest, and during this time my sister -in -law secretly went to prepare a snack for us, secretly because Céline just doesn't want her putting herself out. When she brought it to us, I was so upset at the trouble she went to. You know, every year you see this, her sister -in -law sends these wonderful gifts around Christmas time for the children, and every year Céline responds the same way. She thanks her. She's so grateful, but you shouldn't have done it. It bothers her when people put themselves out for her in any way like this. I was so upset at the trouble she went to that I was far from showing appropriate gratitude. She contented herself with laughing at my apparent coldness because she knows Céline, oh well, I'm truly not very pleasant. So she's very matter -of -fact about herself this way. She never puts herself on a pedestal. Fortunately, I'm still willing to admit it, exclamation point, but if I don't know how to show signs of affection, this is why I chose this letter. I feel the sentiments inside. I believe I wish for my brother's prosperity more than mine. Her brother was a pharmacist, and he had a pharmacy, he had started a drug business, and they were struggling at times. In fact, Céline and Louis would help him even financially. Later things went very well for Isidore.

"To you potentially being the head of marketing down the road for the Boston Bruins or the Celtics or living out in the West Coast like Anne Marie is right now. So I love those tips and advice. You guys are now listening to in Marie Leyte. She is one of the nonprofit founders of empower her. And we are going to be learning all about that nonprofit shortly, you guys are listening to her talk all about growing up right in New England in the Massachusetts area. She talked very highly about her childhood with her mom and dad and vacationing at Cape Cod in all of the fun things that new englanders love to enjoy in the Boston area. Like running the Boston Marathon and getting involved with sports, but we are going to talk about a sad turning point that happened in Anne Marie's life. So at the age of ten, you lost your mom to a brain tumor and I just want to hear from you, again, you can give as little or as much detail as you would like. Explain that experience. What was that like being a young girl and having something like that happened to you? Yeah, and thank you for asking..

"Obviously, majorly through empower her, but just personally, and my dad as well is so supportive of all the things. So I think having that, it lives in your heart in a way. And I love that you mentioned that you have such a strong draw to Cape Cod. For those of you guys that are listening that might be either a from a different state or maybe for another country and don't know exactly what Cape Cod is, it essentially is the part of Massachusetts. If you look at the United States map and you look at the state of Massachusetts, it's like the little hook in the corner surrounded by all of the water. That is up where the cape and the islands are. And as miss Anne Marie just mentioned, it's a place that people enjoy going to, especially in the summertime. They have fabulous beaches, beachside restaurants. It's just it's kind of like I like to look at it as a staycation for a while my parents for a number of years had a little beach cottage there out in Dennis port and I was obsessed with it. It's just, it has such a cool little vibe to it. So Anne Marie, I think that is awesome that you have such fond memories from there. And I want you to talk about sports as a kid, of course, this is a lifestyle sports podcast, so you know. We have to discuss sports a little bit. Did you play any sports as a kid? And how did you stay active? Or how do you like to stay active currently? Yes, definitely. And I think back then empower her wasn't around in power her helping young girls through mother loss wasn't around then. And where do you channel this energy and just given the environment of north out of our which is a big sports town, I played I was a cheerleader and then after my mom passed away I switched to field hockey. I did lacrosse and track. So I was always very involved in sports. I think that it's just a should be a part of everyone's life in some way, shape or form. I think it's a great way to put energy somewhere, especially when you might be going through hardships or you want to work toward a goal or teamwork. I mean, just getting to know your teammates and creating a community in any sense, especially in sports when it's physically exhausting and physically challenging, I think is so important just to well-being in general. So I did do field hockey was kind of my favorite sport, especially throughout high school, but I was always a runner. And when I went to UMass, you know, sports so much there. I was in the sorority, so it was a little bit different. So I laid off quite a bit, but then after I graduated from college, I was like, okay, it's definitely time to tune back into this. How can I do this as a 22 year old woman at that time? You know, as much as I love to stay active, the yoga classes don't always quite cut it. You know, how can I take this to another level? So I was really busy at the time working with empower her. I had another job, but I'm the type..

"Metal a motivational podcast. Where we tell stories about regular people overcoming insurmountable odds. I hope everyone is doing wonderfully and just as pump for this week's episode as am as i'm sure you've all guest by this point. I'm a gigantic and unapologetic nerd. Nothing wrong with it. But i love to learn especially about subject matter that i know very little about so. There are some things that i kind of gravitate to definitely the humanities. I love history. I love the rt stuff but such things like math physics science. I'm not exactly too familiar. So there's like such a thrill for me to learn more about that sort of subject matter and it's truly that initial expiration period. That i just find so much fun enjoying. I really enjoy it but the individual will be learning about this week. I'm quite sure. Shares the same sentiments in terms of the pursuit of knowledge this individual dedicated their life to learning and discovery for the benefit of their fellow man in particular in the area of the sciences during this time period this individual had to defy cultural norms and excelled in areas and academic circles that traditionally were notoriously hard to break into. This person didn't allow their societal constraints to keep them from achieving and exceeding their goals through dedication determination and an obsession to learn and to know. This person broke the glass ceiling and took science as a whole to new em- previously impossible heights. So this week will be covering the bright's the brainy the brilliant marie curie now. I thought i'd known the basics of marie curie story but surprisingly. I had no idea that marie curie was a name sheet assumed later on in life. Marie curie was born. Maria sklodowska on november seventh eighteen. Sixty seven. Marie was born in warsaw. Which is now considered poland and was the youngest of five siblings. I thought this next fact was a great example. As to why childhood is so impactful in matt is that marines. Parents were both teachers unsurprisingly. Marie showed extraordinary ability early on in her childhood. Marie was reported as having an incredible sense of memory and recall as well as a voracious curiosity throughout her academic career. Marie was always an accomplished student and was passionate about succeeding in her studies. Marie was an elite student in eagerly consumed new knowledge when marie became of age and although she was more than qualified she was unfortunately not allowed to attend university during this time period where maria was growing up. Higher education was only afforded to men so women were not allowed to attend. Marie wasn't allowed to participate in formal schooling. But that doesn't mean. She gave up her passion for learning quite the contrary. Marie would join a secret group of students who attended clandestine classes yes. Marie had to attend an undercover learning program in order to continue her education. Like these students dedicated okay. They were not playing while. Maria was still learning with our unconventional education. She longed to complete in receive her formal degree after discussing it with a sister who shared similar goals in ideals about education. The two girls came up with a master plan and honestly big ups the sisterlove because while marie would work in pay for her sister to attend university overseas to earn her degree after her sister received her degree they would switch roles in her sister would support marie while she attended school and while her sister was attending school. Marie worked different jobs for a teacher to governess all the while. Never ceasing her own studies. Marie would continue to self study subjects like chemistry in math while she worked to put her sister through school around eighteen ninety one after her sister had completed her degree. It was marie term. Marie would travel to paris enroll in school and become completely engrossed in her studies. Marie also began to follow the teachings of famous researchers in physicists. Now this roads education wasn't necessarily without any downsides or negatives. Although maria was pursuing her dreams of receiving her formal education degree she was not on firm financial footing by any means receiving the bare minimum to complete her schooling. Marie was suffering at home from malnutrition reportedly while pursuing her education. Marie survived primarily on buttered bread in t- which to me just makes murray's accomplishments academic accomplishments even more impressive such a meager sustenance in still performing at the top of her class in eighteen. Ninety three marie would receive her first degree in physical science. Then just a year later. Marie would receive her second degree in math so murray went from being rejected from university to earning not just one but two degrees but this would just be the beginning of the incredible academic legacy of marie curie in eighteen ninety four. Marie would meet someone who would become her life partner in more ways than one right after graduating with her second degree. Marie was introduced to pierre curie. When marie met pierre she was working in a laboratory. Completing a commission study on steel and his magnetic properties they were described as the perfect pair as both amazing partners in marriage and science. Marie and pierre would get married on july twenty fifth eighteen ninety five. While completing her research and experiments marie would discover too significant elements polonium and radium. She would also begin to study radiation more closely following the discovery. These new elements now. I just wanted to emphasize. She discovered elements that previously were perceived to not even exist. The periodic table at the time was pretty much a static thing. Nobody expected to make any additions or changes to the table. But marie discovered not just one but two new elements after studying. The work of fellows physicist named henry belk well. Marie was inspired to research. The findings even more extensively. This intern inspired.

"Disbelieving and then they agony that you activated in someone else. You will experience. No i'm not saying that. All of the four or five billion people who believe in this really believe in it they just have been taught it and they it so because an authority a religious institution has told them in our country which is mostly christian. Christians are told that love is the basis of your life when it's meaningful and worthwhile and the model is the christ and christ made this real clear are you. You love your neighbor enough to die for your neighbor. Or what would the world they like. If every christian lived dat not believed it felt that what would the world be like if every buddhist not only believed that consciousness and responsibility continue after the body dies and never blamed anybody for anything. What would the world. What would that world be like. All buddhist and all hindus in reincarnation and karma now a new consciousness is bringing us to the reality of these things and we can see for ourselves what we previously had to believe or take on faith. Creating authentic power is become the authority in your own life. No longer works to say the devil made me do it. It ear affair based part of your personality. That is speaking to you. Not attempt. temptation is something else. Temptation is a dress rehearsal for a negative karmic event. Giving you another opportunity to choose consciously with an to add or speak with an intention of love as all that we're talking about is living a conscious life and grading authentic powered transforms your life into an ongoing meditation. Heartful us meditation. Don't worry everything that you learned in. Mindfulness meditation applies very much applies. But as you create authentic power your meditation becomes intentional the intention to act with love and to eliminate the intentions of fear in your life. And it's doable. It's doable. I haven't done it yet but from a drug doing sexually addicted nurse assistant. Full myself macho guy. The thought he was cool looking back. I can see what my relationships didn't work door. you did come even this former. You can come farther. You can go farther you can. I'm not trying to convince you. Because that would be pursuing external poor but i can give you tools for you to experiment with as they were given to me and then you can see with doing your life but you're gonna use your life for you pointed out marine. You acted with love gave you peace. Yes that's because love is real fear. It didn't as because fear is not fair is an illusion so it might say that when you act on the illusion you create painful consequences. The illusion is that domain of experience in your school. That is fear whenever you fear which means whenever you judge whenever you're angry or jealous or vengeful or feel inferior and need to please or feel superior and entitled or can't stop thinking about someone who's going to be your savior. Gotta have her. Oh he's gotta be mine or you can't stop eating or drinking or looking for sex or gambling or shopping or any of the things that are beyond appear to be beyond your control. Your the allusion you are controlled by the things of the earth. Put it that way but how to live in that learning environment. Which is the school. Which is what you're in now consciously and choose between love and fear. Which is the fundamental duality in this realm of duality. Then you move. Toward fullness toward creativity toward vitality toward meaning toward purpose toward richness toward health and the gifts that you were born to give begin to call you to them and you begin to be aware enough to listen to the call and to experiment. Maybe i shouldn't be doc. Maybe i'm adopt because my mom was dock. Maybe i wanna be a landscape architect and you begin to experiment. It's your life. what are you living at. Four fear or love are the answer right now is probably mostly for fear and if you have a reaction to that pay attention because whenever somebody says something you react to it. I'll put it in first person. Everybody ever anybody says anything to me like you're jealous. If i have a reaction to it. I know that i should listen to me. You think that comes from fear. If i get angry if i say well look. Why talk about this now. And why are you always telling me what to do. And i know that she's just told me something that could benefit from listening to. Yes but if. I'm not doing any of those things. I don't have a reaction. No absolute what. I'm doing now emotional church to gary. This is so incredible. I cannot thank you enough for our time together today. And of course. This gorgeous new book which i hope everyone gets and reads. Is there anything as we wrap up.

"Out tensions versus intentions. And i can. I literally heard someone say so. I can't get the ferrari or you know so. Is it bad to wanna get the other house or to to have these things. And if i'm hearing you correctly. Gary it really is about well. Why why do you want that thing. And is there a true loving intention behind it so like if we dig in there a little bit. Let's say somebody wants to get a vespa. A little italian scooter. I've rented wise. Is there like a loving intention. That is you know it's a thing it's not like i want on necessarily cool on the vesta although that could be fun but there's a joy that's associated with it. I'm curious of your your hoping to things entirely different. Yep that's fear attempt to manipulate the world. Yup and how they think about you view. Yeah it was. It's fun purchase. Like walk just like riding this little thing. yes is something else. That's a simply an attraction to joy. Yes a lot of my life was spent scheme in the back. Country ski slopes but i thought it was fun and was fun. There are certain parts that were fun. But in general i did add because i had a manly majo- myself and being skier was part of that. That was fear. Every part of that was fear. The of the brand ski. I was skiing aware of my ski boots. I was aware of what i was doing. I'll tell you the only part that was really fun. pure fun. Robots any question in my mind was in the spring. Snow is soft and forgiving. I could take a lift up or scale up on skins to a beautiful bowl and ski down. And especially if i did it at a ski resort. I leave my polls at the bottom. Skip to the top of the lift and ski down without polls telemarketing on my tele marks and that was wonderful i love the way my body feels the weight and the an wade and the smoothness of it and the beauty of the skis carving through the snow it was snow. Ballet was and that was pure joy. So can you see the difference between between doing that to impress somebody to get sex to get a preoccupation to get admiration yet or just the joy of being their undoing. The reason i want into to peel into that a little bit more was because of something else. I highlighted which was Something you wrote on page forty five of universal human if you are surprised by your experiences because you are unaware of the intentions that created them right so i was like. This is amazing. Because i started to kind of flip through different scenarios in my past and different experiences in my life where -absolutely i was creating out of fear one hundred percent unaware that i was doing that but that was certainly where the impulse came from and and then i was like That's how those consequences unfolded so. Just that's why. I wanted to say that because i could hear my audience asking questions but what about this and i also just wanted to highlight this notion that if you are surprised by your experiences it's because you are unaware of the intentions that create them effect has a cause. And if you participate in the calls you will participate in. The effect is an intention in the school. It's an intention of love on intention of fear and intention is a quality of consciousness. That infuses as you said a deed or the word if that energy is love that infuses the deed it is more important than the deed. It is more important than how you perform the deed. Imagine two friends walking down a trail and they're talking and then suddenly one of them looks at the other pushes him hard off. The trail and into some blackberry sticky. It's terrible thing to do somebody now. Why did that happen that it happened because they were talking politics or religion and one friend got so enraged at the other come stand it anymore and pushed him or was it because a friend bella rattlesnake and the trail directly ahead. It's the same scenario with two different. Two different intentions. One was an intention of carrying one was an intention of fear of judgement. So you no one can know your intention speaking to all of us now. No one can know your intention except you took creating authentic power is intimate. It is very intimate. What you decide to do is for you to decide and it affects you. If you consider the fact. I would suggest that the universe doesn't look in terms of right and wrong better or worse but in terms of cause and effect there's cause and effect and as you choose the 'cause you also choose the effect that means if you believe this can create your life consciously you can choose the types of experience that you're going to encounter and if you do choose to believe it mode that there are probably i'm going to guess four or five billion people that agree with you. This is karma karma is another name for the universal law of cause and effect. The universal low of cause and effect is the impersonal universal teacher of responsibility. What you choose creates consequences in the experience of others and you yourself will experience those experiences say for example. You betray someone. Maybe you had a gauge to get married and you were walking l. mail. And you couldn't do it. You couldn't doing then. You left then well that the trail is something that experience of being betrayed. We'll come back to you now. I big too complicated example. It's much more complex than that. Because sometimes there's a good reason for not walking down the aisle and somebody realizes it and they have the courage to say. I'm not gonna do this and it's a good reason. It's not just fair. It seemed what's happening but the point is if you do betrays someone say you. Embezzle money from a friend or you. You understand what i'm talking about. Yes you yourself will be betrayed. And it's not necessarily someone embezzling from you. It could be someone not showing up for your wedding could be. It could be a platoon leader. Who abandoned you in combat. In whatever way this message comes back to you this experience it may have different clothing. When the head when you sent but you'll recognize the message you've been portrayed and the pain and shock and dismay and the.

Like i'm not just saying that i believe it like i literally live it and i have your book and i love it and i bought it because of that reason. It's the same mantra love man. Yeah yeah and it's so it's like people may think these things are like whoo or just affirmations or like positive pop psychology. That is just fluff. But it's like no. This is like real like the most important conversations in the world are the conversations that you have with yourself and if they are encouraging and again it's not all going to go right all so much stuff that i'm trying to figure out it goes wrong. It gets messy it gets real messy. Ugly cries the frustration like all. That's great but eventually i'm going to figure it out and that's how you become a trailblazer with your concert. Not done that before. I'm telling you i can. I just tell you. I was thinking because i'm like okay. We're kind of coming out of this pandemic thing right. We got this light at the end of the tunnel. Really excited about it. I was thinking when cannot do something like that again. Because i am. I'm sure you have this experience to when your mom gave you that incredible madre never see. You can kind of awakens a superpower within you where you're like oh right you get hungry jen yet to take an adventure or if someone tells you and you probably experienced this right so many times in your business and so many times in toy industry or you see it in other people were. Somebody's telling them they can't and you're like don't listen. Don't listen you can. And then you get excited to take on those challenges. Yes i right before our call. I would jumped into my facebook group because my students just got off pitch meetings with toy companies and we got a lot maybes but we did get some nose and i went into. Tell them like guys. I know you're discouraged by these nose. And i brought like a little toy from my side of my thing like this little like this random turtle i got from puerto rico and i was like if you pitch this turtle to someone and they say i really don't like his head moves. You can't go onto the next pitch meeting thinking. Oh my gosh is head moves. I should not show this to anyone. You have to go into that meeting thinking like i made his head move for a reason and instead of defending with your y lead with your y and i just talked about that so i love that you brought that up. Yeah are you loving. This conversation. As much as i am mazing. Let's take a quick break with a word from our sponsor. Imagine a world where you could get inspiration and motivation at the click of a button.

"Basic. All right let's get down to the nitty gritty. Let's irony know. What my favorite pieces are. I personally have not bought pants in two years very long time. Because i've been waiting pants. I know my sweatpants and my square top. We're going to be my favorites. But what are your favorites top. All around is is our one of our goto. We worked really hard on it. It has this double layer. You could go brawl us if you want to you with. Aim an up. And i don't have to wear a bra only by shirts that i don't have to wear bras and i mean this is fantastic. I've been waiting for. We'll even with cova about anyone but like my sweatpants are not going anywhere anytime soon. Anytime put on jeans. I take them off so quick. And i'm like okay to drive will all day. yes so the whole brawlers comfy is where it's at. I really wanna wear the sweat with like heels. That would it so. That'd be so fun. But i also love the square neck. The hoodie is a huge favorite of mine. It is oversized and baggy. it's so thick. It's heavy when you put something on. It feels heavy. It's not like hot. Had not not has the. It's like yeah. Dick mind the best way and also the pockets. If you if anyone listening gets one of the hoodies you have to pay attention to the pockets. Because they're so soft so which is just a weird fun fact at an irish so so a little nice little wasn't nice. I think another thing. I'm really proud about is the quality. I wish i could actually say the designer's name but again this is drama. This is t- you guys. I didn't say this in the video but we were picking out fabrics forever. This was at the manufacturer. Twenty twenty early twenties hundred fifteen. Maybe even twenty eighteen. Maybe but we were picking out fabrics and we had picked which one that we liked. And then the next time we went in for the actual sample sizing and like trying all the samples. The guy were working with tufts and he was like. Oh yeah this designer actually picked that same like a very would this top luxury designer. Who's going to charge about twenty times. The amount had also selected that fabric after we did for one of his t shirts or something like that so needless to say there's going to be a very top designer t shirt for probably six hundred dollars. That's the actual exact same material as our shirt which is under one hundred dollars. So that's insane. Which is something also taste. I always knew. I had expensive tastes in that moment it was no secret But yeah that's something. We're really proud of the price. Point is very affordable. Everything's under hundred. The only ones that are a little is the fleece which is like the hoodie. And this weapon but there which is worth every penny. I cannot agree. I would genuinely think they're like two three hundred dollars like easily like the just the the weather the quality if that designer put their name on your pieces i would completely. I wouldn't hundred percents. Hooked me up to a lie detector back good. Yeah oh my god. I waiting for pure packet on. Imagine you give me one take top and then i never. I'm never gonna not wear anything else. We're also superstar. Because obviously we're big youtuber people in this household We've documented the entire process from like the very beginning from alicia telling me right after my gym class. And i look like a hot mess. I mean blonde blonde hair was short and i was pink. 'cause i just walked out of the whole face was being i have freaking. Butterfly extensions like that was an era. We have that documented to today where we've been working on it the whole time and we filmed there's videos going up on leash channel that she's filmed and there's a video going up on my channel that i found in Yeah it's just it's it's going to be really cool to see like the whole process. I it saves my computer keeps dying manifesting. And can we just say go organizing the google drive without alone. Fulltime job on the hard drives was madness. It literally took a team and it took like a month just to organize it and kind of get everything. Situated start editing. Another thing say to anyone who is a creator in any way shape or form. Just start backing up your footage. I know you don't want to. I know you're lazy one day you'll regret it with everything in your life me listening right now so let me just say the middle one day you're gonna want it and you're going to be mad at yourself just do it. Just do it. Well on that note. What are we most excited about. I'm nervous i'm stressed. I'm excited i'm i. I think i'm just excited to you. Know we've been working on this for so long and we always talk about doing things outside of youtube. Because that's what we're used to and diverse yourself and everything but at the same time i get why a lot of people don't because it is scary but like this is a good learning time for me. I think i've really learned that. Even if this quote fails to what some people think and the end. I want to try and i want to learn and see what i can just learn from this experience and then it doesn't mean failing like if i can say i co founded a brand launched and i learned a lot from it like that's enough eletion aren't very rash people. I feel like we planned very methodically for this and I'm i'm taking a little bit of a risk financially with you. Know a bunch of different things but i. We've we had multiple talks about this like we'd rather take the risk and know that we gave it our all in try like innocence. Like ed rather fall forward learned something then like never try and wonder the rest of my life and i think we all hold ourselves back so much from the fear failure. I talked about that like we all do it. But i think i'm finally starting to get to that point where i realized i might. What's more scary to me. Is not trying are feeling like i could have done so much more with my life with my friends with dating with whatever it is like what you know trying to save yourself from heartache or failure is worse than trying it and quote failing against trying and the not trying living. Yeah failure i think. That's one of my favorite podcast. But the how. I built this podcast with guy. I love all every brand every entrepreneur on that. Podcast had to do the same thing where they were like. Oh this might be this. These not gonna wear multiple. Yeah and you know like they had to take that step forward. So i feel like at this point. If we don't take this step forward we'll always wonder like and we've we've already had a handful of people telling us that oh apparel and clothing is the worst thing you can do. Act so saturated. It's overdone you have to do all the sizes it's better to do one product blah blah blah. But we're just so passionate about this and from day one we knew we. We have to try this like we have to do it. And who knows where we'll go and who knows where it won't go but the point is is we're going to learn and we can add this to my. You know what's becoming a long list of experience and i'm excited for that more than anything. And of course just for people to feel like sexy and confident as they are is to quote a cinderella story. Never let the fear of striking out. Keep you from dammit good. That's exactly but yeah we're so excited. I'm so proud of you guys. I'm so excited that we can finally share your christian rock band a world..

"We took ended up being the website banner because photo fully encompass the message behind the brand the brand all at once without even trying by complete accident literally everyone got chills and then i mean. They shot there for a really long time because we were like. Oh eight lay around favorite footage so good so after the. I was actually at lunch with allie and she was saying because she's a professional model. How something that happens to her. A lot is her post will get banned on tiktok or flagged for sensitivity on instagram. It happens all the time. And i had seen that kind of going around but i didn't realize how bad it was and that's a combo. We should have her. Just talk about in the podcast as a whole actual other episode of platforms telling women and men. They're sensitive if they're wearing the same outfit. I would be wearing a bikini like why like the way it works as the algorithm no to pick up skin so it doesn't matter if it's a smaller bikini or a bigger bikini finn in frame. It's they think it goes under the category. Yeah i've always wondered. I see so many people on tiktok who are not even plus is just like and they the the caption is tiktok. Please don't take this tiny tiny tiny little skinny girls teenage dance and david tiktok dance. Y getting hand. Yeah or accounts remove so. That's a much bigger conversation that needs to happen with the difficult thing for allie. Because she works brand deal she'll be doing paid brand deal and it'll get taken down. Can you actually imagine. and what do you do. I feel like they should just implement some other. If that's going to be an issue obviously instilled it because there was an issue with it. Then have someone manually like doing it. Yeah like why then but then technically like. Let's let's say it's savage for example like they could manually turn it off for that post but that's still like so you're it's okay if they post it but not me and i get how it's like. Well how do you measure that. But i'm like in this day and age. I feel like there needs to be something better than like. Like what the hell's. That was just a whole other thing that i was like. Wow i'm really interested to see what posts of ours on parallels account gets mark sensitive or if that happens you know what i mean because it is true why can one model where the thong bikini and it be fine an alley. Not you know. I've always wondered why that happens. Isn't that interesting. It makes sense but it doesn't make sense and understand. How do you even gauge that. Like how do you go about making sure. There isn't only content or something but it's just like wow so that's a whole conversation i think.

"A huge reason why we wanted to do this was all. Three of us are late bloomer in late bloomer girls And i know you guys also feel this way. But i hate that. It took me over twenty five years to actually feel confident about an. I know it's normal. But i still feel like. I'm a late bloomer on that like i. I hate the fact that i wasted. Most of my twenties feeling insecure comparing to other people are feeling like things are super competitive. And just not feeling confident in the body. That i'm in and i mean we've all been there where we think assize is gonna make us feel hotter sexier or you'll be happy once you reach this goal or get this car xyz. And i hate how much time. I've wasted my life with that. And i would love for someone to wear these clothes or see a model a similar size to them to feel that confidence way before twenty six or twenty seven. The freaking awesome. God i like it. It's shitty and i do think that you know all of us who grew up. In this time period you know experienced a lot of media only celebrating double zero sizes. And it's so exciting that we could be a part of making a difference. But let's get into the mission statement. Our mission statement so that whole thinking really just propelled our our mission statement our motto of hashtag sexy as is because the whole point is you are sexy no like oh this is what this is has tripped me up for so long. The confidence that i have now found later in life full that was always there and me. I just never tapped into it and like everyone is in neatly sexy just as they are. It's not what you're wearing. It's like yes. Closed can enhance that. And we hope that these closed make people feel comfortable. They feel hot. They feel sexy. They can be who they are but it's already inside like this so cheesy but being sexy confident like it's not a destination it's not as not a size. It's not a status or amount of money that you have like it's just there and i i know it's part of life of finding that hope people can realize like they don't have to be something that they're not or they don't have to wait till they're a certain size to feel hot like they already are like the already or and i hate that closer just accentuated. Yes i think also. The word sexy is so subjective. Eventually you think if i were to wear it lingerie that's sexy. Butt wearing parallel is actually is more of a feeling. It's how you feel in your own skin and it's not sex appeal. It's just being sexy and think about how many magazines tv shows movies. We've seen not literally brainwashed us to think your own taxi sexiest woman. Yes if you look a certain way or where certain thing or whatever and like that's so messed up. And i just i see how much that messed me up on the rest of the world and i yeah it is so subjective and i feel i feel the sexiest when i'm like i don't know what i'm just like getting ready doing my makeup in sweatpants going out with my friends at night and it's it's different for everyone and yeah so i assure you don't need like big big butter tiny ways to be sexy again. That's just a conventional idea. And again i. They're exactly when i'm wearing an outfit that i don't feel comfortable in my confidence goes down because you're just so worried about. What is this sticking out in my like like you know what i mean. That's even one of our favorite things about these pieces is that they're so transitional they can they can literally you can be wearing like the top that i mentioned earlier. You could be wearing that with sweatpants at home working from home landry on the couch napping i don't care whatever and then you could. Just walk out your sweatpants for a skirt and go out. And they'll be doing that transitional and they're so nice but like it could be casual. It could be dressed down. It could be dressed up. It doesn't matter it goes either way and my whole goal. I've already said this on another podcast but my goal is that. Someone's just wearing it on their couch lounging right. They're wearing parallel. And then the next day. They closed some like multimillion dollar business. Deal while wearing parallel. You are a bombed out of my god. That's something else that we're super stoked and excited about. We have the most amazing group of super talented women that are freaking running this entire show. We've been having like parallel meetings in secret. Obviously the last two months every friday at our house. And we keep having. I keep having i think. At least you. These like surreal moments just kind of like sit back and i'll look and they're all of these super talented Amazing women that are bringing so much to the table and hustling so hard and it's just really crazy to think that we're finally like coming towards the end of well. I mean it's technically not the end. It's actually the beginning like the end of a really long launch for like in the pro is. Isn't the prologue right. Now go to chapter one. Which is crazy. That's so exciting. Though just you saying right now like someone sitting in their parallel like that gave me chills. Insane think they're wearing now. I feel like that's something happened like we. It's called parallel apparel. And then we've gotten so used to saying it. We just call it parallel now. So i'm sure that's going to be a thing that happens in the future also also learning to spell parallel and i tell you i guess how many times i'm still like which one has anybody else. Gp's yes okay herald and also fun fact. This actually goes back to one of the videos. You did forever ago me yet. She's looking right. I mean he's the one you uploaded about. How after you lost weight. People called you a slot. Where before you were funny So that video so such a similar story line to you're talking to one of our plus size models names alley so fine. So i'm she knows how to work. I can't let me tell you. She the bodysuit. Yes yes yes. The iconic bodies side. No on that literally. I explain it in the youtube video going up but we had so much drama around getting samples for the shoot. I honestly. i didn't explain this well in the video like that would have wasted tens of thousands of dollars if we didn't get like i don't know how it all worked out. Shooting with the samples was fault is half of it was on me. What i did wrong is me. I feel like i did really really wrong. Was i knew. We were having select sizes for the samples but i picked models that i just wanted. I didn't think about. Oh you're a small you need fit. I need a m model. Like i just picked models. Obviously i got diverse models for instance. Yeah so that's i fucked and that's hard because you want your brand to. This is your brand new until go. Mazing fit the model properly exactly so i messed up there which it worked out but could have been better than the other end. I think it was just communication. I also think it really fell on our team being small there wasn't like it wasn't the stylists fall like. That's the main thing. Like i think we just didn't have someone four product directly dealing to make sure. That was seamless. When your defense so you guys had so many models and also what. I thought was interesting. Like you had the ecommerce models but then you help models just like socials in video dot. And so i'm i would be so confused and i thought i was so prepared but anyways that was drama but it all worked out because we asked ali. Hey are you down just to shoot in this body souks. That's the only sample we had for her and she was waiting around on morning. We hadn't even shop because like none of her clothes. Were there so we were like. Oh my god what do we do so we asked her hair you down just a shooting this because she always does like she models for like savage not all the time and she always laundry chutes and she was like yes. That's what i do. Oh my god. Like let's do it and i was like. Oh my god. I was comfortable. Because it's like last minute change. Thong bodysuit yeah. Are you comfortable in front of the crew. I wanna make sure you're good. Thank god it's a thong bodysuit. Thank you so much but we ended up taking photos of her in and not only was it just like amazing we ended up getting jocelyn or other model to wear it and having them side by showing the size range and the same body suit was chills worthy. I cannot explain it like was made. Like i can't explain. How would have never happened if it wasn't for the sample drama nan..

"Three x god so we kinda group them into three sizes. Also your self funded. So i i got it. I want self-funded again. That's something we easily would have judged another company on being like oh like. Why didn't you do that like it's so easy to pick apart that kind of stuff and now i just understand the brand side a little more and again. We've just started doing this. So i'm sure i'm going to learn even more along the way but that was something we were like. Oh so you can't just decide to be worldwide shipping or like. Oh you can't just decide hang it makes more sense and obviously again we want to have four or five at like we wanna make our sizes bigger but again cell phone again. What did we know these things and now you have goals. You can work towards attaining in the future. Complete launch launch. Whatever it is like now you know what you can do exactly that have to do and we're actually like super proud of our extended sizes We evidently we learned this but a lot of companies and brands will just kind of like scale up their sizes Based off of the what the medium large and they'll just great up according to that kinda like a cookie cutter. You know what you you get a bigger shortness just wider. But it's not longer any kind of you're like. Why is it just like big in the wrong area. That's because they just most likely took measurements and made it bigger opposed to like actually customizing interesting. So that was obviously something unleashing. I didn't want to do and we were very much like okay. Like if we're entering into you the plus size world the extended size world. We want to make sure we do it right And luckily for us one of our really good friends is a plus and curve model professionally. Like that's what she does shutout lexi alexi and she's worked with huge brands. Yeah she's she's done this for years. She's been out here for forever modeling and just doing her thing and she offered to come and kind of try on every single piece that we had in her size as irv model and give us her notes on it and oh my god she gave so many at its own which it was like a bittersweet moment. 'cause we were like oh shit. That's a lot of at. Its but that's what we brought her in for She would like one of our favourite tops. The square neck tank top. You're going to lie. It's one of my absolute favorites. It looked. I tried it on. There's a photo i think of me. And her both wearing the same one. It looks like a tank top on me. It looked more like a bra lead on her so she was like. We need a couple more centimeters here. We need to add more fabric here. and so she did a lot. And i i i'm confidently say like i'm i think we did a really great job with the. Did i think we did the best job. We cut. and we're so open for constructive criticism and even some of the things he was saying she was like so you know some plus girls have bigger larger. Yeah however not. Everyone does so. And that's going to feed into whether the the shirtless so obviously you know. There isn't just like one secret to everything. But just i think trying to be aware is something we've been trying to do but we are super open. You know for instance. Like the biker. Shorts like likes would say. Let's add two centimeters here. Let's add one and a half centimeters here even little things. We didn't even think about of one question she asked was if ashley are wearing the same shirt right now. Does it look like the actual shirt or do they look like completely different pieces and little things like that is so interesting to see someone who does model fittings for our profession. Yes the thin models people that are like a standard extra-large smaller medium order go in and they tweak to body yes so is that what you do with a brand normally like. That's what lex is. Job is kind of now. She'll do that for some well known brands like they'll come in but not everyone can afford to do that. He's going to say any. Most of the brands that do that are very high. End brands that can afford. Yeah one of my friends roxy fit model where the bathing suits. But it's like rocks a huge huge brand. And they're able to do that. So i think for someone who has a small business and can't do that like even just having their friends being able to come in and try different. Things is a huge advantage. Then what most people are doing. So even if you can't afford to have like a professional model like just even getting different people with different body types you know wearing some of your pieces or accessories and being like. Hey do you like this. Do you ate it like. Just give me your honest feedback. Please don't bullshit me don't be amazing like no. Tell me like. i wouldn't actually wear this. So that was that was really awesome. And i didn't know any of this. I didn't realize that when lexi was trying things on and giving him notes that you are actually going to hurt also like every size. I it sounds dumb but i didn't realize that the extended size for we're going to be so particular yes to actual bodies. I don't know if that makes any sense but it's weird because like you don't think about it but once you do your like oh of course. Of course we had to do that. you know. that's that's the only way it would fit properly. We also were super super blessed. We have so many friends that were involved in this entire process. We have so many photographer friends that did headshots that helped shoot content One of our friendly nicole and hayley did photos levette. Did everyone's hair every model. All our alexis oakley crush. The makeup was so sharp..

"Your main main goal for the brand our goal as of now is everything has been self funded and that's been a little bit also been interesting. That's been scary. That's been not super normal any other brands and influencers brands. So it's definitely it's investment. It's a gamble you know. Obviously we want things to do. Well but i. I think in the end goal. What we would love is the number one thing we wanna do is get investors into the brand but the whole approach this way is. Let's be self-funded. let's launch. Let's get the data. see how it does. And then we can present that to potential investors instead of them just wondering how much to give right off the bat you know now looks at the bar and see. Let's see how how it does just on our own you know. And that's what's so scary you know. Compared to merch for instance everything is printed kind of made to order. I don't really have to put money into when someone orders a so extra shirt but this because know it's being produced. We have to pay for the clothes ahead of time. Will they sell out either. So so it in your briefcase stressful. But it's that's part of it so we've definitely learned a lot. Yeah a lot a lot but we are so excited Yeah i mean being sores one day but then that also raises the question of what is the traditional brick and mortar or like especially today to in. Today's you know everyone to be stores like. That's something i easily would have had on top of my list and now it's kinda i don't know maybe it is just on ecommerce which makes sense to me. I feel like the future. I mean so many brands a majority of their profit comes from e commerce sandwiches. So interesting i know. A lot of brands lose money when they have physical stores. Yeah yeah overhead. The goal would be like if it were sold in like a nordstrom or like allies within it but not. Its own store. You have your own little n. Capital would be ideal. But yeah. I think it's just going to be all e com. At least i have been in the industry for such a long time now which is so crazy to think about but something that me and her both kind of really wanted to start. Focusing on within the last three years was diversifying. I think that's where my podcast came from. That's where your podcast from And so i think the goal for parallel was to eventually it be its own entity on its own. Obviously we're going to be using platforms to you. Know talat forward. But i think the goal would be for our faces to like not even be a part of it. I would love if my no one knew that we were youtubers. Maybe if no one even knew we were sisters. And that's like a fun story that they find out. Once they dive into the brand. I would love for someone to be like. Oh i found this this brand parallel apparel but like not know who we are and also like think of like the subscribers who like. let's let's. Let's daydream here for a second and say the brand does do well like imagine the subscriber saying i followed them for years before they did that. That's really cool. Yeah and Other goal is as of now. It's just north america but we definitely want to be worldwide one day that all depends on how it does so. It's so crazy because we understand from the influencers side wanting to have our viewers happy because we do have such a diverse audience who live all around the world. And it's so. It's so weird. Because i feel like i used to judge brands on the creators. I being like. Oh my god. You're doing it wrong. Why don't you have all the sizes or why aren't you. Worldwide or blah blah blah and. Now i understand because it just costs so much money like it costs so much money we actually. This is t- on our website. We have extra small two three excises and we wanted it to where when you click extra small you see a model end extra small size when you click three x you see a model wearing the three x closer you can have a actual representation of what the closer look like on your body tidy to us. It was like no like. Why would we not do that. Come to find out to find out. Obviously if we're gonna have it on the e commerce right there's roughly what ten to twelve pieces blah blah blah. How much is it gonna be. Well that means all of those pieces need all of the sizes it turns out it was going to be an extra fifteen thousand dollars just to have the samples. Every model could be wearing each piece of clothing not stopping for the models. That's just that close. You would still have to do all of their day rates like that so expensive because you have to just sourcing the samples and everything and making sure again you have to have not only each piece. You have to have five sizes for each thing and each color every piece like because so much money when you receive your samples. Did you only receive the samples in your own sizes that you could personally wear them and try them out and things like that so where we settled because again we were being so hey like we need you know representation like we have to. That's the number one thing for us right now. We we ended up kind of grouping them together so when you click extra small smaller medium you see someone wearing the small. when you click large to ex- you see someone wearing a size..

You marie i remember you telling me something outside of the church one day and i hope you don't mind talking about it. I just saw. It was such a great way to look at things. You said something like this year. I'm gonna take care of myself. Yes busy year of. Marie is what i said. I think probably some people forget to take care of themselves sometimes. It was after all the commotion with the stroke in katie's illness and hp's turrets and there are a lot of other things that happen. During this year we lost his dad unexpectedly and there are some other family things that happen. That were pretty traumatic so it was a rough a rough time for all..
