Yet Therese died when she was 24, after having lived as cloistered Carmelite for less than ten years. She never went on missions, never founded a religious order, never performed great works.

    St Therese, I beg for your assistance. I do not know what to do anymore. I have prayed for your intercession for a long time and nothing is working out. Every time I try to take a step forward I end up going many more steps backwards. I just don't know what to do anymore. I really need those around me to understand and help me. I am at extreme breaking point and I cant do this anymore.

    Dear St. Theresa, thank you for dropping a little rose on us . Please continue to keep us in your prayers to Jesus. St.Theresa , the little flower of Jesus, please pick for me a rose from the Heaven Garden and send it to me as a message of love.Ask God to grant the favour I implore and tell him I will love him each day more and more. Say 5 consecutive days before 11 am with 5 Our Fathers, 5 Hail Mary, 5 Glory Be,. you will receive a rose or a sign of a rose during this time if pray is to be answered. Publish Prayer.

    Dear Saint Therese,
    Please help us in our needs; may our hearts be fertile to love God in all circumstances.
    We pray also for our fellow animals and very especially for our cat Nene, may he come back to us, to our house, where he's much loved and respected. This we ask of you through Christ,
    our Lord.
    Happy Feast Day, Little Flower!

    This one is especially important to me; when I was baptized, I had a choice of 2 Theresas . The elder one & the little one. Not knowing much about either & at the Sisters suggestion, I chose the Little One. After reading this I now know why. Thank you so much :)
