Prayer…

O St. Therese of the Child Jesus, who during your short life on earth became a mirror of angelic purity, of love strong as death, and of wholehearted abandonment to God, now that you rejoice in the reward of your virtues, cast a glance of pity on me as I leave all things in your hands. Make my troubles your own, speak a word for me to Our Lady Immaculate, whose flower of special love you were to that Queen of Heaven “who smiled on you at the dawn of life.” Beg her powerful intercession the grace I yearn for so ardently at this moment…

(State Your Intentions Here….)

and that she join with it a blessing that may strengthen me during life,

defend me at the hour of death, and lead me straight on to a happy eternity.

Amen.

 

O God, who did inflame with the Spirit of Love, the soul of your servant Therese of the Child Jesus, grant that we also may love you and make you much loved. Amen.

Next, Recite the Prayer of the appropriate day…

 

O Therese of the Child Jesus, well beloved and full of charity, in union with you, I reverently adore the majesty of God, and since I rejoice with exceeding joy in the singular gifts of grace bestowed upon you during your life, and your gifts of glory after death, I give Him deepest thanks for them; I beseech you with all my heart’s devotion to be pleased to obtain for me

 

Say: 1 Father… 10 Hail Marys’… 1 Glory be to…

 

(State Your Intentions Here….)

But if what I ask of you so earnestly does not tend to the glory of God and the greater good of my soul, do you, I pray, obtain for me that which is more profitable to both these ends. Amen.

 

St. Therese of the Child Jesus, pray for us!

 

In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen
