DAY 25

 

NOVENA IN HONOR OF THE LITTLE FLOWER

That we may love God more and more everyday on earth and posses Him for all eternity in Heaven!

Thoughts for the day are taken from the words of the Little Flower.

Come Holy Ghost and fill the hearts of the faithful, and kindle in them the fire of Thy love.

V. Send forth Thy Spirit and they shall be created.

R. And Thou shalt renew the face of the earth.

 

Let Us Pray

O God, Who didst instruct the hearts of Thy faithful by the light of the Holy Ghost, grant that by the gift of the same Spirit, we may be ever truly wise and ever rejoice in His consolation. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

O my God! I believe in Thee: do Thou strengthen my faith. All my hopes are in. Thee: do Thou secure them. I love Thee: teach me to love Thee daily more and more.

 

THE ACT OF CONTRITION

O my God! I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee, and I detest all my sins, because I dread the loss of Heaven and the pains. of Hell, but most of all because they offend Thee, my God, Who art all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of Thy grace, to confess my sins, to do penance and to amend my life.

 

PRAYER

O Lord Who hast said: Unless you become as little children you shall not enter the Kingdom of Heaven, grant us, we beseech Thee, so to follow, in humility and simplicity of heart, the footsteps of the virgin, blessed Therese, that we may attain to an everlasting reward. Amen.

 

 

First Day

 

St. Therese, privileged Little Flower of Jesus and Mary, I approach thee with childlike confidence and deep humility. I lay before thee my desires, and beg that through thine intercession they may be realized. Did thou not promise to spend thy Heaven doing good upon earth? Grant me according to this promise the favors I am asking from thee.

Intercede for us all the days of our life, but especially during this Novena and obtain for us from God the graces and favors we ask through thine intercession. Amen.

 

Thought for the day: CONFIDENCE IN GOD.

We can never have too much confidence in the good God Who is so powerful and so merciful. We obtain from Him as much as we hope for. What offends Jesus, what wounds His Sacred Heart, is lack of confidence in Him.

If you are nothing, do you forget that Jesus is everything? You have only to lose your nothingness in His Infinity and think only of loving Him.

 

CONCLUDING PRAYERS

We fly to thy patronage, O holy Mother of God. Despise not our petitions in our necessities, but deliver us from all dangers, O ever glorious and blessed Virgin.

 

V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.

R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

 

Let Us Pray.

Grant O Lord God, we beseech Thee that we Thy servants may enjoy perpetual health of mind and body; and through the glorious intercession of Blessed Mary, ever Virgin, may be freed from present sorrow and enter into eternal happiness, through Christ our Lord. Amen.

O God, Who didst inflame with Thy Spirit of Love, the soul of Thy Servant, Therese of the Child Jesus, grant that we also may love Thee and make Thee much loved.

 

May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
