St. Therese of the Child Jesus
"After my death, I will let fall a shower of roses. I will spend my heaven doing good upon earth. I will raise up a mighty host of little saints. My mission is to make God loved..." -St. Therese

We have been devotees of St. Therese since Nov. 2011 when my son miraculously had clearer vision after praying the Little Flower rosary for just 3 weeks. He wore 220 eyeglasses before but after praying the Little flower Rosary daily and even during his school break, after 3 weeks, he no longer needed his eyeglasses! he has been healed!
WE ARE VERY THANKFUL TO ST. THERESE FOR COMING INTO OUR LIVES!
We make Little Flower rosary beads and give them to church-goers (for free) and we teach and encourage them to pray the Little Flower Rosary.
When you have a chance to come to the Philippines, please feel free to contact me so we can organize a talk about St. Therese's holy life.
Thank you for spreading her word. More blessing to you and your family.

ST. THERESE HAS BEEN A SPECIAL SAINT FOR ME SINCE HIGH SCHOOL...I BELIEVE SHE'S RESPONSIBLE FOR MY VOCATION AS AN AUGUSTINIAN RECOLLECT SISTER.
I was a high school student then in a Catholic parochial school, St. Vincent's High School, Bonifacio Misamis Occidental. It's in the northern part of Mindanao. Our teacher in Religion subject required us to choose a Saint that was special for us. It was then that my relationship with St. Therese of the Child Jesus started. When I was an aspirant, I brought with me a copy of the Novena to St. Therese. Until now, I still keep that novena prayer and pray the nine-day novena before my birthday and before the feast of St. Therese almost every year.
When the relic of St. Therese visited the Philippines years back, I felt privileged to be around in Manila and welcomed her at Villamor Airbase and other churches here.
St. Therese, pray for us.

A Morning Prayer Written by St. Therese
O my God! I offer Thee all my actions of this day for the intentions and for the glory of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I desire to sanctify every beat of my heart, my every thought, my simplest works, by uniting them to Its infinite merits; and I wish to make reparation for my sins by casting them into the furnace of Its Merciful Love.
O my God! I ask of Thee for myself and for those whom I hold dear, the grace to fulfill perfectly Thy Holy Will, to accept for love of Thee the joys and sorrows of this passing life, so that we may one day be united together in heaven for all Eternity.
