Prayers to Saint Therese

Saint Therese of Lisieux is one of the most popular and well known saints, having been canonized by Pope Pius XI in 1925. From Normandy in France, Therese was a Carmelite nun, answering the call at only fifteen and followed a simple and practical spiritual life. She contracted tuberculosis at the age of 24 and passed away.

Saint Therese is commonly known as "The Little Flower of Jesus" who lived her life quietly but became well known posthumously because of her spiritual autobiography.

Saint Therese the Little Flower

St. Therese,
The Little Flower,
please pick me a rose
from the Heavenly garden
and send it to me
with a message of love.
Ask God to grant me
the favor I thee implore
and tell Him I will love Him
each day more and more.

(The above prayer, plus 5 Our Father's, 5 Hail Mary's, and 5 Glory Be's, must be said on 5 successive days, before 11 A.M. On the 5th day, the 5th set of prayers having been completed, offer one more set - 5 Our Father's, 5 Hail Mary's and 5 Glory Be's.)

Prayer to Her

Your servant of God,
St. Therese of the Child 
Jesus, who in her dying moments did say:
I will spend my heaven in doing good upon earth, hasten to let fall upon me a shower of
roses that I too may be
inflamed with that fire of love 
which burned so brilliantly in 
your heart and which 
brought you so gloriously to 
the arms of Jesus, my lord 
and my God. Amen.

  • Thanks for the feedback! That’s an interesting point. I suppose there are many reasons, internal and external, why we do not accomplish all that we might. Regardless, I am thankful for the Lord’s grace in that. Thanks again!

    I didn’t have any expectations concerning that title, but the more I was astonished. The author did a great job. I spent a few minutes reading and checking the facts. Everything is very clear and understandable. I like posts that fill in your knowledge gaps. This one is of the sort.
