MARIANNE STORIES #7

April 11

Theresa, 8-yr-old Chinese girl, wanted to read about her patron saint. She was looking in Vol 1 of Saints for Young Readers for Every Day and wondered why she couldn't find her. I explained that St. Theresa's feast is in October which is in Vol. 2. She told me I was very smart. I gave her the book, and she eagerly went through the contents but was confused when she saw what she thought was Theresa's name misspelled. "Ms. B, the book spelled it wrong!" "No, Theresa, the book gives the French spelling, because she was born in France, and that is how you write the name Theresa, and this is how you say it." She looked at me, eyes wide open, and said softly, "Ms. B, I didn't know you can speak French, too!"
