A Prayer to Saint Therese
O little St. Theresa
of the Child Jesus, who during your short life on earth became a mirror
of angelic purity,
of love strong as death, and of wholehearted
abandonment to God.
Now that you rejoice in the reward of your virtues,
cast a glance of pity on me as I leave all things in your hands.
troubles your own - speak a word for me to our Lady Immaculate,
flower of special love you were - to that Queen of heaven "who smiled on
you at the dawn of life."
Beg her as the Queen of the heart of Jesus to
obtain for me by her powerful intercession,
the grace I yearn for so
ardently at this moment,
and that she join with it a blessing that may
strengthen me during life.
Defend me at the hour of death, and lead me
straight on to a happy eternity.

my death. I will spend my heaven doing good on earth.
I will let fall a shower of roses."
