Pray the Novena to St. Therese
Pray the novena to St. Therese of Lisieux. She is such a powerful saint, although she died from tuberculosis when she was only 24.
Living in a convent in France, her zeal for souls was so great that she was named a patron of the missions. Her "little way" has led many people to grow in holiness and simplicity.
There is a tradition that if you pray her novena, a rose will arrive to you somehow to tell you that your intention has been heard in Heaven. This should not be the goal of the novena, but it is rather a good method to make friends with this great champion of Heaven.
My Novena Rose Prayer
O Little Therese of the Child Jesus, please pick for me a rose from the heavenly gardens and send it to me as a message of love.
O Little Flower of Jesus, ask God to grant the favors I now place with confidence in your hands
(mention intention silently)
St. Therese, help me to always believe as you did in God’s great love for me, so that I might imitate your “Little Way” each day.
What intention do you want to entrust to St. Therese during this novena?
