4 Must Say Intercessory Prayers to St. Theresa
A Petition for any Favour
Blessed Little Flower of Jesus, turn thy sweet face toward us, and through the intercession of that dear Little Infant Jesus, continue to fulfill thy promise to send upon the world a shower of roses, the sweetness of whose perfume will draw all souls from the passing things of time to the joys that never end. Amen.
A Prayer for Spiritual Childhood
O my sweet Jesus, give me the charity and simplicity of Saint Teresa of the Infant Jesus, whose mission in Heaven is to make others love the good God as she loved Him, to teach souls her “little way”. Give me such longings that I may not rest until I arrive at the spiritual childhood of the Little Flower. Amen.
A Petition for a Private Necessity
Dear Little Flower of Jesus, Saint Therese, remember thy promise to spend your heaven in doing good upon earth. Hasten to let fall on those who call upon thy help, a shower of roses, and obtain for me this favour… which I ask through the infinite goodness of God. Amen.
A Prayer for Charity
O holy seraphic Little Saint, most pure victim of love, having at length expired by the vehemence of thy love for God; by that inexplicable joy and grief thou experienced when thy heart was wounded by the Seraph, obtain for us, we beseech thee, such an ardent love for God, as shall consume in our souls everything that is earthly and sinful.
O God, Who didst inflame by Thy Spirit of Love the soul of Thy servant, Saint Teresa of the Child Jesus, grant unto us also love and to make Thee ardently loved. Amen.
V. Pray for us, O blessed Therese,
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let us pray:
O Lord, who hast said: “Unless you become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven”; grant us, we beseech Thee, so to walk in the footsteps of Thy blessed virgin Therese with a humble and single heart, that we may attain to everlasting rewards: who livest and reignest world without end. Amen
