Novena to the Little Flower

It begins today. Here are some lovely recommended prayers:
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 your 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. Amen


O Glorious St. Therese, whom Almighty God has raised up to aid and inspire mankind, I implore your Miraculous Intercession. You are so powerful in obtaining every need of body and spirit from the Heart of God. Holy Mother Church proclaims you 'Prodigy of Miracles... the Greatest Saint of Modern Times.' Now I fervently beseech you to answer my petition (mention here) and to carry out your promises of spending Heaven doing good on earth...of letting fall from Heaven a Shower of Roses. Little Flower, give me your childlike faith, to see the Face of God in the people and experiences of my life, and to love God with full confidence. St. Therese, my Carmelite Sister, I will fulfill your plea 'to be made known everywhere' and I will continue to lead others to Jesus through you. Amen

Your post today reminds me of a little flower from the Pittsburgh Diocese, Jackie Evancho. For those of you not aware of her she is 11 years old , has had two albums reach the #2 spot on the Billboard charts, and in interviews and through her music she is not afraid to share her faith in the lord. Here are a few videos for you to enjoy.

Yes, I have heard her sing...it is startling to hear a voice of such power coming from someone so young and delicate looking.

Was up in Altoona tfor a few days of fishing and was able to go to Loreto for Novena, Benediction, Exposition and veneration of relics at the Carmelite Monastery. What a beautiful experience.
