Great Idea, Why don't you Tag Along

A Novena to a Super Saint!

Novena to St. Theresa the Little Flower

First Day (to begin Monday)
(each of the 9 daily prayers will be posted daily-
remember to visit daily to complete the Novena)

O Heavenly Father, Who in Thine ineffable goodness didst place in
the soul of St. Theresa of the Child Jesus the precious treasure
of sanctifying grace, and didst grant her ever to keep it in the
midst of earthly dangers, we pray Thee to grant to us for our part
the happiness of never losing this inestimable gift whereby we
become Thine adopted children, the brothers and sisters of Thy Son
Jesus, the temples of the Holy Spirit and the heirs of Heaven.

Enable us, to this end, carefully to avoid mortal sin which would
rob us of this grace more to be desired than all the wealth of the
world, to fly the occasions of sin, and to resist temptation.

We implore these graces through the intercession of the one who
was ever Thy faithful child and whose memory we venerate.

St. Theresa of the Child Jesus, who would have preferred to die
rather than lose God's grace, vouchsafe to obtain for us all the
help necessary to avoid the misfortune of committing mortal sin,
incompatible with this divine grace. Obtain for us the favors we
crave and implore through you powerful intercession.
