The Catholic Child and the Saints :: Little Flower

by | Oct 2, 2014 | Jesus Make Me Worthy, Prayers for Children, Precious Moments: 06, Roses from St. Therese, St. Therese | 4 comments

Dear St. Therese, thou wert always good and obedient and always did the Will of God. Now thou art a great saint in heaven with God. Thy loving and tender heart rejoices to send down roses upon earth. O give me the sweet flower of a great love for Jesus! Pray for me that I may have all the graces I need.

I couldn’t help smiling when my beautiful little “Rose” walked into our room early this morning wearing her new “Wild Irish Rose” t-shirt (purchased at a fun little Irish store we visited on our road trip) without any reminders from me on whose feast day is celebrated today! 

St. Therese, the Little Flower, pray for us!

    What a sweetheart 🙂 I love St Therese, she is a favourite saint of mine and I've often experienced her intercession.

    How sweet her smiling face is, and that she wore the rose shirt on this day. I love the name of your blog and the Shower of Roses theme.

    That is precious! Happy Feast Day (a day late, but I had the tab open all day yesterday and just couldn't get to the comment)

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
