Happy Feast of the Little Flower! As I have mentioned before, she has done so much in my life, especially in my last years of school and in the college seminary, in forming me and helping me discern my vocation.
I renew my devotion to her in gratitude for her constant fidelity as a friend in Heaven.
Please pray for a special intention of our young man who has helped so many receive graces from pilgrimages to Fatima. The devil surely doesn’t like all that he has done for Our Lady, and is now showing in full force his distaste for the glorious work of a faithful servant of Mary. I think Saint Therese is up to the task to intercede for this fellow.
O Glorious St. Therese, whom Almighty God has raised up to aid and counsel mankind, I implore your miraculous intercession. So powerful are you in obtaining from God favors and graces that Holy Mother Church has called you ‘the greatest saint of modern times.’ Now I fervently beseech you to answer my petition:
And to carry out your promises of spending heaven doing good upon earth, and of ever letting fall from heaven a shower of roses. Henceforth, dear little flower, I will fulfill your plea to be made known everywhere, and I will never cease to lead others to Jesus through you. Amen.
