St. Therese of Lisieux Comments

Generations of Catholics have admired this young saint, called her the "Little Flower", and found in her short life more inspiration for own lives than in volumes by theologians. 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.

    Thank you for being my confirmation saint and thank you for your beauty inside and out. I appreciate reading your story and how you wanted to please God so much. I am doing that as well, the best I humanly can and I pray that when I do the little things, without telling anyone, that HE sees my motives and my desires for it is my wish to be like Jesus and walk on the same path and love unconditionally, which sometimes is so hard, but if I keep my eyes on Jesus in everything I do, no matter how small, I feel will reward me, for the little things. I pray that I St. Therese will intercede for me regarding my sister in Law, Cory, she needs peace and love and relief now in her life. Thank you for hearing my prayers.

    I am scared my older sister is jealous of me because I seem to be having an easier time in school and I am a better runner than her. I don't want her to feel any of the pain or confused emotions she is feeling, please let her forgive me for leaving her behind on our run today, for she is really upset with me. I know not what to do, I don't want to stop trying so hard while I run because that is the pain I offer to lord Jesus. I see I should keep trying as hard I can while I run but keep my times as quiet as I can but I need help for I am not at all modest and greatly struggle to hold in my pride.

    St. Therese Lisieux, please help my sister and I to for give each other our hates jealousies and aggravations so we may become as close as you and your older sister Paulina, humble me as you humbled yourself and help me sacrifice my pains desires successes and failures to God and pray that one day both my sister and I will become saints.

    St Therese, please help me to be able to finish everything in time. Please help me to not feel so alone as I always feel that at the times I need the most support from my family I get none. Please help everyone to help me to do it especially as this is my very last chance. Please let them realise this as I am really out of choices and options and will not get any more chances. Please intercede for me so my request is granted. Amen
