Most Holy Virgin, Beauty of Carmel, Virgin Flower, forever in bloom, Bright Ornament of Heaven, Virgin Mother of a Man God, Mother of Holy Love, Mother of mercy and meekness, Mother honoured above all mothers, be propitious to your dear children of Carmel, and to all those who have the happiness of wearing the holy scapular.

St. Thérèse of Lisieux NOVENA TO SAINT THÉRÈSE OF LISIEUX

O Little Thérèse of the Child Jesus,
please pick for me a rose from the heavenly garden
and send it to me as a message of love.

O Little Flower of Jesus, ask God, today, to grant
the favors I now place with confidence in your hands...
(Mention specific request)

St. Thérèse, help me to always believe, as you did,
in God's great love for me, so that I might imitate your
"Little Way" each day.
Amen.


MIRACULOUS INVOCATION TO SAINT THÉRÈSE OF LISIEUX

O Glorious St. Thérèse, whom Almighty God has raised up to aid and inspire the human family, I implore your miraculous intercession. You are so powerful in obtaining every need of body and spirit from the Heart of God. Holy Mother Church proclaims you "Prodigy of Miracles... the Greatest Saint of Modern Times." Now I fervently beseech you to answer my petition (mention here) and to carry out your promises of spending Heaven doing good upon earth... of letting fall from Heaven a Shower of Roses. Little Flower, give me your childlike faith, to see the Face of God in the people and experiences of my life, and to love God with full confidence. St. Thérèse, my Carmelite Sister, I will fulfill your plea "to be made known everywhere" and I will continue to lead others to Jesus through you.

St. Teresa of Avila SAINT TERESA'S BOOKMARK

Let nothing disturb you

Let nothing affright you

All things are passing

God Alone is changeless

Patience wins all things

Who has God, wants nothing

God Alone Suffices.


PRAYER TO SAINT TERESA OF AVILA

O great St.Teresa, we are lost in admiration of you. So many names, elevated and loving are yours, but one of preference we will call you by is "Teresa of Jesus" It tells best all that you were and are to Jesus and to me. You have been looking with pleasure at your children, most unworthy but loving, you have marked our endeavour to glorify you. To show you our love and confidence in you, accept what you find deserving and teach us not to cling to what is passing away. Look into our hearts. Read there our sincere desire to pray like you, to work like you and above all to love like you. Make us by the apostolic motives and spirit with which we devote ourselves to our life-work, true to our name. Remove from us all forms of tepid and unworthy living. Our Mother, our saint, our Patroness, hear us, bless us and obtain for us what we ask for the love of Jesus. Amen.


*****************************************************


SAINT JOSEPH MEMORARE TO SAINT JOSEPH

Remember O most amiable, O most benevolent, O most kind, and O most merciful Father, St. Joseph, that the great St. Teresa assures us, that she never had recourse to your protection without obtaining relief. Animated with this same confidence, O dear St. Joseph, I come to you and groaning under the heavy burden of my many sins, I prostrate myself at your feet. O most compassionate Father, do not, I beseech you, reject my poor and miserable prayers but graciously hear and obtain my petitions. Amen. Our holy Father, St. Joseph, pray for us.

MOTHER VERONICA NOVENA PRAYER TO MOTHER VERONICA

God of Love and Mercy, You have poured out Your gifts of grace in abundance on Your servant, Mother Veronica. We thank You for the precious heritage she has left to the Church through her single-minded search for Your will and her heroic pursuit of holiness. We humbly ask You to grant that she may be raised to the honours of the altar, so as to be a continual source of inspiration to all who aspire to a life of close union with You, and of selfless service to others. We ask this through Christ Our Lord and the intercession of Mary, Queen and Mother of Carmel. Amen.

Dear Mother Veronica, we earnestly ask you to intercede with God that ......... (mention the favour you are praying for) so that He may be glorified through you. Amen.
