When Rosemary Thérèse Robinson (affectionately known as “Rosie") was diagnosed with childhood cancer, her five older siblings returned home to support her. Little did they know that Rosie would not only carry her own cross of suffering, but would help carry theirs and their parents' crosses, as well.
Rosie never complained. She laughed and loved with her family and retreated to the quiet of her bedroom when in pain. She also wrote letters to God.
These letters were so filled with the faith and joy reminiscent of Saint Thérèse that they moved the heart of a local Dominican nun to nickname Rosie “The Little Flower of Nashville.”
Listen to Rosie’s sister Hayley share about the gift of Rosie, as well as the witness of her parents as they accompanied their beloved daughter as she prepared to go home to Jesus at just 19.
This is a witness of the bonds of a family deeply rooted in prayer, faith and the supernatural love of God. But it is most of all the story of a young girl who reflected Our Blessed Mother as she said, “Let it be done to me according to thy word.”
