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 ... Continue Reading

    St. Therese merci for coming to me and bringing me a red rose when I was at my sickest. I did not ask for your intercession but you came anyway. I am looking for the answer to what the color signifies. White indicates a successful crossing over after death but what does red mean? Merci beaucoup

    St Therese, I feel so alone. I am really struggling in several aspects of my life (two in particular) and everything that I try to do is always met with resistance which makes it even more difficult to sort out. Please help my family to understand my problems and to be helpful and supportive before it is too late. Please let them consider all aspects of the situation and to accept and respect the decisions I am making and realise why I am doing so. Please help them to realise that the risks are worth taking because the alternative is definitely not working. I humbly pray to you to intercede for me and to help me to sort out these problems. Please be with me and guide me and give me strength, endurance and commitment to get through this. Amen

    Thank you St. Therese, for the longest time I've been praying for a job. Then I turned to you. I prayed your novena for nine days and to my pleasant surprise, I was called for an interview. I don't yet know the outcome of the interview but I trust that God will give me a better and well paying job.

    Thank you Therese for the beautiful rose that you gave to me last night. I know now that you do indeed hear my prayers and I only ask (very humbly) that you continue to intercede for me and my special intentions. I am sorry for doubting you.

    St. Therese, I don't think I've really prayed to you much...maybe once. I am stuck in my decision to stay with my boyfriend or not. I know he loves me and I love him very much, but his secret that he kept from me hurt me and betrayed me so bad. Please. I know I don't know much about you and I'm sorry I have never spoken with you (I think), please let me know if he is the man for me. Please let us know if we are who God meant for each other. Please. No more confusion...just clear definite answers.. Please change him and help him completely give himself to Christ. I as for us to truly give ourselves over and let God speak to us. May we please hear His voice and see your miracle. If there is any chance for us to survive and live a happy, holy, honest, and faithful life together please save us and keep us under your protection from sin and unfaithfulness. Please please St. Therese. Thank you so much. Please send me any message God would have for me.
