Novena to St. Therese: In Thanksgiving

Novena to St. Therese:  In Thanksgiving
O Glorious St. Therese of the Child Jesus!
Our beloved heavenly patron,
our beloved guide.
Shower upon this community
with abundance of roses.
Make this your mission parish.
O Patroness of the Missions!
That the sweet frangrance of your roses,
may bring everyone to know and love,
The Divine Child Jesus
whom you have loved so much.
In His Holy presence,
consecrate our lives
so that we too may welcome one another,
like you have welcomed the Child Jesus.
Let your gentleness and kindness,
fill the emptiness of our hearts.
Let your missionary zeal and prayers, 
become our daily work so that we, too,
may become a beautiful rose,
to all and everyone.
O Little Flower of Jesus,
ask God today to grant the favors
I now place with confidence in your hands ...
(pause for silent intention)
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 and every day.
JESUS, MARY, I LOVE YOU, SAVE SOULS.
ST. THERESE, PRAY FOR US!
