"...it will be like a shower of roses.
After my death, you will go to the mail box, and you will find many consolations."

St. Therese - The Little Flower
02 Jan. 1873 - 30 Sept. 1897
Canonized 17 May 1925 by Pope Pius XI

Novena To ST. Therese

O Little Therese of the Child Jesus,
Please pick a rose for me
From the heavenly gardens
And send it to me
As a message of love.

O little flower of Jesus,
Ask God today to grant the favors
I now place with confidence
In your hands.

(Mention specific requests)

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.


Quotes By St. Therese Of Lisieux

"Yes, when a soul has allowed herself to be captivated by the inebriating fragrance of Thy perfumes, she could not run alone, all the souls whom she loves are drawn after her; this is a natural consequence of her attractions towards Thee."

"You know well enough that Our Lord does not look so much at the greatness of our actions, nor even at their difficulty, but at the love at which we do them."

"For me to love you, Jesus, as you love me, I would have to borrow your own love and then only would I be at rest."

"My only desire now is to love Jesus even to folly."

"Our Lord needs from us neither great deeds nor profound thoughts. Neither intelligence nor talents. He cherishes simplicity."

"Jesus, help me to simplify my life by learning what you want me to be - and becoming that person."
