Little Flower Ministry- A Home for the Arts
"In the beginning God created heaven, and earth." (Genesis 1:1 Douay-Rheims Bible). In the beginning God CREATED. The Arts are God-given gifts to certain people that, through them, they might reflect God and use them to gift them right back to Him; thereby glorifying their Creator in the special way He has Willed for them. That is what it means to be in the Arts. Little Flower Ministry is A Home for the Arts- a place where people in all fields of the Arts can flourish in their gifts; remaining united to Christ on a spiritual level without being hampered by the cares of the temporal things of this world. It’s them being who they are- the children of God. It's them and God. And the fruit of that loving relationship is their Art. And this Art, whichever Art it may be, is then, also through Little Flower Ministry, presented to the world so that others may come to know God in His Role of Creator as well.

Little Flower Ministry is a non-profit 501(c)3 that was founded by Angel Katherine Taormina and named after her family’s patroness Saint Therese of Lisieux in 2010, given an Apostolic Blessing by Pope Benedict XVI in 2012, and started out with two branches- film (Rose Room Productions) and literature (Mystical Rose Publishing). It is a “tree” that plans to keep adding branches and expanding upon its existing branches in any way that God sees fit. It seeks to be able to support and nurture Artists of all types- in dance, music, radio, painting, sculpture, live performance, composition, and in any other field that can standardly be considered an Art- so that new branches can be added to the Ministry and more Art can be created for the Glory and Honor of God.

Writers- be writers. Actors- be actors. Singers- be singers. Dancers- be dancers. Artists- be artists. Be the you that God made you to be. “Be what God Willed you to be and you will set the world on fire.” (Saint Catherine of Siena) That is what Little Flower Ministry will enable Artists to do- to be themselves, to unite themselves fully to Christ, and to do His Work in His Will for their lives. “Do what you do for God, or don’t do it at all.” (Angel Katherine Taormina- Actress, Author, Opera Actress, Director, and Stage Choreographer for over 15 years, Consecrated Perpetual Virgin of the Church for over 10 years, and Cradle Catholic {born a Catholic} who, in 2007, underwent a massive re-conversion experience entirely related to the Arts). “Catholic” means “Universal,” and that is where God is leading us to bear our fruit- Universally. For God. With God. Through God. In God. To God. And may the Fruits thereof bring His Love and Redemption to all the world. Amen.

To understand more of what we at Little Flower Ministry believe, read your Douay-Rheims Bibles, your JP2-approved Catechisms, and the Nicene Creed, and learn what the Church (capital “C” Roman Catholic Church; i.e.- the oral tradition passed down from the Holy Trinity from the beginning of time) has to say: God is the Answer. Now, what’s your question? God Bless you all and thank you for visiting Little Flower Ministry.

 

NICENE CREED (English):
“I believe in one God
The Father Almighty
Maker of Heaven and of earth
Of all things visible and invisible.
I believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ
The only begotten Son of God
Born of the Father before all ages
God from God, Light from Light, True God from True God
Begotten, not made
Consubstantial with the Father
Through Him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation He came down from Heaven
And by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary and became man.
For our sake He was crucified under Pontius Pilate
He suffered death and was buried
And rose again on the third day
In accordance with the Scriptures
He ascended into Heaven and is seated at the Right Hand of the Father
He will come again in Glory to judge the living and the dead
And His Kingdom will have no end.
I believe in the Holy Spirit
The Lord, the Giver of Life
Who proceeds from the Father and the Son
Who, with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified
Who has spoken through the prophets.
I believe in ONE, HOLY, CATHOLIC, AND APOSTOLIC CHURCH
I confess one baptism for the forgiveness of sins
And I look forward to the resurrection of the dead
And the life of the world to come.
Amen.”

NICENE CREED (Latin):
“Credo in unum Deum, Patrem omnipotentem, factorem caeli et terrae, visibilium omnium et invisibilium. Et in unum Dominum Iesum Christum, Filium Dei unigenitum, et ex Patre natum ante omnia saecula. Deum de Deo, Lumen de Lumine, Deum verum de Deo vero, genitum non factum, consubstantialem Patri; per quem omnia facta sunt. Qui propter nos homines et propter nostram salutem descendit de caelis. Et incarnatus est de Spiritu Sancto ex Maria Virgine, et homo factus est. Crucifixus etiam pro nobis sub Pontio Pilato, passus et sepultus est, et resurrexit tertia die, secundum Scripturas, et ascendit in caelum, sedet ad dexteram Patris. Et iterum venturus est cum gloria, iudicare vivos et mortuos, cuius regni non erit finis. Et in Spiritum Sanctum, Dominum et vivificantem, qui ex Patre Filioque procedit. Qui cum Patre et Filio simul adoratur et conglorificatur: qui locutus est per prophetas. Et unam, sanctam, catholicam et apostolicam Ecclesiam. Confiteor unum baptisma in remissionem peccatorum. Et expecto resurrectionem mortuorum, et vitam venturi saeculi. Amen.”

Ars Gratia Deum. Art for God’s Sake. We are Entertainers who know and follow our God-given purpose. We each have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, Whom we have accepted into our hearts as our Lord, Savior, Brother, and Dearest Companion. In His Love, we work for Him. In this work, we plant His Seeds for Him to bear Fruit in hearts. In the body of Christ, like Saint Therese, we, too, want to be love.

“Everything for You, my Jesus. Everything for You. I am Thine. Forever and Forever. Amen.” (Angel Katherine Taormina)

“Trust and trust alone should lead us to love.” (Saint Therese of Lisieux)

“The mercies of the Lord I will sing for ever. I will shew forth thy truth with my mouth to generation and generation.” (Psalm 88:2 DRB)

Little Flower Ministry’s film branch, Rose Room Productions, has, thus far, included:
The re-release of “Angel’s World”, an educational sing-a-long video that teaches young children about Jesus,

The combined release of parts one and two of “Guilt and Redemption”- a story of a courtesan who murders her abusive husband in self-defense and loses her mind only to recover and discover that it is never too late to come back to Jesus and find real love,

The making and release of the shorts “A Woman’s Worth” (about a woman who helps her friend discover that true success in life is based solely upon loving Jesus) and “Miracles Still Happen” (about a homeless man and a Religious Sister who witness a Eucharistic Miracle), the films which aided in Angel Katherine Taormina’s reception of Pope Benedict XVI’s Apostolic Blessing upon her work,

The remastering of several of Angel Katherine Taormina’s earlier works for the sake of bringing out their moral and religious undertones,
The making of the documentation of the “3rd Annual Rosary Relay for Priests,” at the Basilica of the National Shrine of Mary Queen of the Universe, which earned them the 1st Annual Rosary Relay Award,

And the completion of the screenplay for “The Saints of the Rue Scribe,” which is slated to be Little Flower Ministry’s (LFM’s) first feature film (based on the novel of the same title which is based on a true story about two married consecrated perpetual virgins who helped to reconcile war-torn citizens to the Church, all the while facing perilous circumstances of their own when misunderstandings and ill-intentioned rumors caused those closest to them to mistrust them).

Little Flower Ministry’s literature branch, Mystical Rose Publishing, has, thus far, included:
The Release of Eight Novels- Seven Original Fictions and one Fiction Based on a True Story...

“The Rose Princess - A Medieval Fantasy”- a princess battles to rescue her daughter and her kingdom from her deranged family and learns how to forgive herself and build a foundation in Christ,

“The Porcelain Doll”- An artist uses his talents to rescue a woman and her daughter from her husband’s prostitution ring and they learn that the Love of God runs deeper than the superficial emotions of romantic art.

“Oriana, or The Secrets of the Rain”- A pillar of the Church suddenly seems to fall back into her old ways from her days as a prostitute and, when accused of possibly killing her husband, she and her husband must find out who is really behind the planned destruction of their lives.

“Carving A Life” - a narcissistic philanthropist loses everything, begins life a new with the family who rescues her, and falls in love, only to discover that the past she does not know must be confronted in order that honesty and freedom, and true restoration of Church and city, may be won.

“On the Eve of Maye” - a half-princess challenges her stepfather and learns to use her own voice for the sake of God and country when she falls in love
with a sea-captain.

“The Saints of the Rue Scribe - Inspired by a True Story and Events” - In 1881 Europe, Joseph and Marie Charpentier, two consecrated perpetual virgins planning to be married, help victims of the war to reconcile with the Church, even as their selfless actions are misconstrued by those dearest to them, their lives are threatened by enemies thought to be friends, and their heroic virtue is tested in the greatest of ways.

“Laurina, The Maiden of Myrdine Manor” - a maid falls in love with the master of her house, who is the brother of a woman planning to become a religious sister, who holds the key to destroying an underground slave ring wherein the true villain is unimaginable.

“Evelyn’s Orchard” - The baby daughter of a married man whose wife has had multiple miscarriages and a woman who thought she’d been raped brings two families and an entire Rehabilitation House together, and an entire city comes to witness incredibly public miracles of God.

As part of the branching out of LFM’S film branch, Rose Room Productions, we have adapted the other seven novels into screenplays and plan to make them all into films. We are also considering the possibility of making films about (and/or using other artistic mediums to specially highlight) other noteworthy holy men and women and saints.

As LFM grows and more and more Artists become involved, we plan to build a physical location for a Community of the Catholic Arts where the Artists and their families can live and work and devote themselves entirely to God without needing to worry about earthly cares. Living for Heaven while on earth, there is no limit to what new discoveries and creations these Artists can bring about for the Glory of God and the furthing of His Kingdom. In the Body of Christ, like Saint Therese of Lisieux, the Little Flower, we will be love.
