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. The only book of hers, published after her death, was an brief edited ... Continue Reading

    St Therese, I desperately need a permanent resolution to this soon. I can not keep going on like this. Please help them to understand. Please let the approaches I am taking be successful and please help me to receive the support that I so desperately need. Please give those who are already helping me the strength to continue to do so. Please help my mum and extended family to realise I am doing everything for the right reaseons and to work with me instead of against me. Please help them to see how much pain and suffering I am going through and to really listen to what I am trying to tell them. I have been praying for all of this for a very long time and have said many novenas to you, but I am still yet to receive a rose. I feel so disheartened. Each day is becoming more and more of a struggle. Every time I try to do the right thing and clear a path to get back on track, it backfires. I no longer have the strength or energy to constantly start over. I desperately need support from my family to get through this, but instead they want to work against me because they feel like I am doing everything for the wrong reason. I do not know where else to turn. I just need them to accept and understand what I am trying to say before it's too late. Please, St Therese, I beg you to please intercede for me and help me through this extremely difficult time. Please hear and answer my prayer and send me a rose. Amen.

    St Therese.
    I have had a terrible time in the last several years. I have prayed to Our Lord and to You for such a long time asking for help but feel that I'm on my own. I feel like I'm losing my faith and there is no one to turn to. I ask for a rose everyday but feel like no one is listening. Tomorrow marks the start of another year and I pray for my terrible times to pass.

    Dear Saint Therese, I made my novena to you and on the 9th day received a beautiful pink rose from you. What a wonderful sign from you that gives me so much courage! You truly are listening to my prayers. Please support me with issues I have with family especially property and being excluded because of greed on behalf of my siblings. And St Therese please also answer my prayers which are now so pressing and urgent. Thank you.
    Love,
    Liz

    Her autobiography " Story of a Soul " has helped me to deal with the cancer that has stricken me, I know that St Therese of Lisicux has already helped me in so many ways, thru my periods of depression and coming to realize that I'am mortal and I was so afraid to die, but anyone who needs her help thru our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ - pray to her and she will shower you with her spiritual flowers from heaven as she promised.

    There are many Saints waiting for someone to ask for their help, St Theresa has helped with a communion of others that I pray to everyday for help thru Jesus Christ to lighted my cross when it becomes to heavy for me to carry.

    God Bless and I will keep you in my prayers, and if you have a moment during the day please keep me in your prayers.

    Shauna, the red rose is the sign of St. Therese. It's her way of saying that she's watching over you. I'm still praying for my own :)
    St. Therese, pray for us all in this sinful world!

    Dear St. Therese of Lisieux,
    I've heard so much about you. I never asked for your help before but I will do it now.
    Dear St. Therese: PLEASE HELP ME! I am in a bad situation right now and I need your help now desperately. Please help me: I need to pass all my exams and get my B.A. degree.
    Also please bring me back to my dear M. I love him so much and we had a perfect relationship. All he wanted was to marry me but we seem to be in a negative energy, please bring him back together, I want to marry him, that was everything he wanted from me when we were together, I don't know what happened, but I want him back, I want to marry my dear M.

    Will you help me? PLEASE! I never asked you for anything before

    In Love, and I promise to post a HUGE thank you if you answer my prayer,
    S.

    St Therese, I desperately need your help. I am at absolute breaking point. Please help my family to understand why I need to make the decisions that I am and help them to realise this is what I need to do. Please help them to work with me instead of against me. Please give all of us enlightenment, understanding, empathy, compassion and patience. Please help me to be able to fix up my health and my studies in the way I know it needs to be done. Please help me to be calm and rational so that I can do what I need to. I have never felt more alone and burdened in my entire life and at a major crisis point. Please intercede for me and send me a rose as I desperately need your help now more than ever.
