For the 9 days leading up until the Little Flower relics arrive in Scotland, we turn to Saint Thérèse of Lisieux and pray a novena for all our intentions. Novena cards should be found at the back of your parish church. Ask your parish priest for more details.
Novena to St Therese
We read in the Gospel whoever humbles himself like this child
is the greatest in the Kingdom of heaven.
St Therese, you tell us I feel that my mission is about to begin, my mission of making God loved as I love Him, of giving my little way to souls.
Teach me the way of simplicity, the way of humility, the way of holiness. Teach me to love Jesus and make Him loved.
Little Flower of Jesus, you tell us I want to spend my heaven doing good on earth. You know the secret of my heart, my joys, my sorrows, my worries. Hear my prayer, look at my life and intercede for me with Jesus.
(Name your request)
Saint Therese, you tell us I will let fall a shower of roses. Thank you for your promise: you listen to those who pray to you. With you, I want to say again, Our father…, With you I want to pray Hail Mary.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end.
Saint Therese of the Child Jesus and Holy Face, pray for us.
