Novena to St. Therese Day Seven

Novena to
St Therese
of the Child Jesus


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. 


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...
(State your intention here....)
St. Therese of the Child Jesus, 
pray for us.
