Day 2 - The St. Therese of Lisieux Novena

Monday, September 24, 2018

St. Therese is known for her "little way," which is simply the idea of seeking holiness in the ordinary and in our everyday lives.

Her "little way" teaches us to do ordinary things with extraordinary love, like smiling at a stranger, or writing a note of encouragement to someone we know who needs it, or calling someone we haven't spoken to in a while, and so on.

Doing these small things with great love are examples of St. Therese's spirituality.

Today, let's pray for all the relationships in our lives. Let's pray that we can be more loving and open within our relationships with family, friends and God. Let's pray that we can have the strength to practice small things with great love for them all...

Here are the prayers for today:

Day 2 - The St. Therese of Lisieux Novena
(Audio/Video Version)

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Dearest Saint Therese of Lisieux, you said that you would spend your time in heaven doing good on earth.

Your trust in God was complete. Pray that He may increase my trust in His goodness and mercy as I ask for the following petitions…

(State your intentions)

Pray for me that I, like you, may have great and innocent confidence in the loving promises of our God. Pray that I may live my life in union with God’s plan for me, and one day see the Face of God whom you loved so deeply.

Saint Therese, you were faithful to God even unto the moment of your death. Pray for me that I may be faithful to our loving God. May my life bring peace and love to the world through faithful endurance in love for God our savior.

Loving God, you blessed St. Therese with a capacity for a great love. Help me to believe in your unconditional love for each of your children, especially for me.

I trust you, Lord. Help me to trust you more!
I love you, Lord. Help me to love you more!

Glory be to the Father, to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end.

Amen.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
