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…

 

Therese of the Child Jesus, most loving Saint, in union with you I adore the Divine Majesty. My heart is filled with joy at the remembrance of the marvelous favors with which God blessed your life on earth and of the great glory that came to you after death. In union with you, I praise God, and offer Him my humble tribute of thanksgiving. I implore you to obtain for me, through your powerful intercession, the greatest of all blessings that of living and dying in the state of grace. I also beg of you to secure for me the special favor I seek in this novena…

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

 

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
