Novena to St. Therese Day Eight

Novena to
St Therese
of the Child Jesus

First, recite the 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 intention 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. 
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. 


O glorious St. Therese, who, 
burning with the desire of increasing the glory of God, 
invariably attended to the sanctification of your soul 
by the constant practice of prayer and charity so that, 
becoming in the Church a model of holiness, 
you are now in Heaven the protector of all those 
who have recourse to you in faith, 
look down upon me who invokes your powerful patronage 
and join your petition to mine 
that I be granted the favor I seek in this novena...
(State your intention here....)
St. Therese of the Child Jesus, 
pray for us.
