Novena to St. Therese Day Six

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. 


O Little Flower of Jesus, 
you have shown yourself so powerful in your intercession, 
so tender and compassionate toward those 
who honor you and invoke you 
in suffering and distress, 
that I kneel at your feet 
with perfect confidence 
and beseech you most humbly 
and earnestly to take me under your protection 
in my present necessity 
and obtain for me the favor I ask in this novena...
(State your intention here....)
Vouchsafe to recommend my request to Mary, 
the merciful Queen of Heaven, 
that she may plead my cause with you 
before the throne of Jesus, her divine Son.
Cease not to intercede for me until my request is granted.
St. Therese of the Child Jesus, 
pray for us.
