The Feast Day of St. Therese

Today, 1 October, is the Feast Day of one of my favorite saints, St. Therese of Lisieux. You can visit The Society of the Little Flower here. There you will find St. Therese's story, writings, prayers, petitions, and so much more. She was a very special lady.

This is one of my favorite prayers:

O Little Flower of Jesus, ever consoling troubled souls with Heavenly Graces, in your unfailing intercession I place my confident trust. From the Heart of Our Blessed Saviour petition these Blessings of which I stand in greatest need (mention here). Shower upon me your promised Roses of Virtue and Grace, dear St. Therese, so that swiftly advancing in sanctity and perfect love of neighbour, I may someday receive the Crown of Life Eternal. Amen.
If you have a prayer request, you can do so here. St. Therese has three times sent me roses.
