St Therese Feast Day Novena Prayer For Peace

Saint Therese of the Child Jesus (also known as the little flower),  entered a Carmelite convent in France at the young age of 15.

Through her “little way” of Love, Prayer, and Sacrifice, St. Therese became known for her Great Holiness.

Saint Therese was proclaimed a Doctor of the Church by Pope John Paul II in 1997, 100 years after her death at the age of 24. (Feast day October 1st)

Saint Therese - "Jesus has chosen to show me the only way which leads to the Divine Furnace of love, it is the way of childlike self-surrender, the way of a child who sleeps, afraid of nothing, in its father’s arms."


(This prayer is used by the Carmelites during the Feast Day Novena)
St. Therese, Flower of fervor and love, please intercede for us.
Fill our hearts with your pure love of God.
As we approach and celebrate your feast day,
make us more aware of the goodness of
God and how well He tends His garden.
Instill in us your little way of doing
ordinary things with extra-ordinary love.
Give us the heart of a child who wonders
at life and embraces everything with loving enthusiasm.
Teach us your delight in God's ways
so that divine charity may blossom in our hearts.
Little Flower of Jesus, bring our petitions
(mention in silence here)
before God, our Father.
With your confidence, we come before Jesus
as God's children,
because you are our heavenly friend.
As we celebrate the Feast Day of your
homecoming in heaven, continue to
shower roses and grace upon us.
