St. Therese of Lisieux Comments

Generations of Catholics have admired this young saint, called her the "Little Flower", and found in her short life more inspiration for own lives than in volumes by theologians. Yet Therese died when she was 24, after having lived as cloistered Carmelite for less than ten years. She never went on missions, never founded a religious order, never performed great works. The only book of hers, published after her death, was an brief edited ... Continue Reading

    St Therese, please help me to change the minds of those in charge so that my request can be granted. I desperately need this opportunity. Please give me the strength that I require. Please help me family to be on my side and see the injustice instead of trying to convince me to accept the situation. I know why I need to do this so please help them to see it too because I just do not have the strength or time to convince them. I do not want to have to spend time arguing with them over my decision and I desperately need their support. Please help everyone involved to understand and be willing to make an exception. Please guide me and help me to make the right decisions about the best way to resolve the situation. I desperately need to be able to do this or I know that everything will be destroyed and I will not be able to start over. St Therese, please help me and intercede for me and my situation because I am at absolute breaking point

    dearest saint therese,

    I have something that is supposed to take place on October 1st, 2012. A good friend of mine told me that this is your fiest day! Is this a coincidence or what? I read about your life and I feel I can relate to you. Sometimes I stood alone at least here on earth. Lots of struggles. Praying for peoples conversion to come back to their Catholic faith, conversion of their personalities, hearts, souls. I pray that all will continue to go well with our situation for October 1st, 2012, fairly, and that I receive the sentimental items that I asked for from my brother in law. I dont wish any harm for him, that he leaves my parents home in love, peace and has a place to go to. that he moves on with his life. I pray for my niece and nephew as well. I pray for my husband and children. (Michael, Kerry, and Brendan.) I pray that there isnt any damage to my parents home, and that no harm will happen to us.

    Thank you Saint Therese for listening to my requests.

    You have just giving me great inspiration , as I read about your life.

    God bless you always,

    St Therese, please help me to be brave and strong like you. Please help everyone around me to understand my situation and to realise that the decisions I am making are for the right reasons. I know that what I am doing is what needs to be done to get there so please help them to realise this. Please help them to understand and accept and respect my decisions and be tolerant and supportive of these. Please help them to listen to me and to what I am saying. I am truly sorry for all the greviences I am causing them and I try my best not to. I know that the next few months are going to be extremely critical to setting me up for the rest of my life so I beseech you to please guide and be close to me during this time. Sometimes I just feel so defeated and extremely close to breaking point and I desperately need strength so that I can carry on. Please help everyone to believe in me and help and support me in everything I am currently facing (regarding both my health and my studies) and to provide me with what I ask to go ahead with sorting these out. Please help everyone to be patient with me and see my perspective and trust in me also. Please guide me to do what needs to be done to get through this. Please allow those in charge to be willing and able and have the authority to give me this opportunity and please guide me so I know what to say and do and give me the ability to be able to do it. Please let this be the lowest point in my life and please help me to be able to move forward in the way that I so desperately need to so that I can get through this and realise my dreams. St Therese of the child Jesus, please pick me a rose from the heavenly garden and send it to me with a message of your love. I beseech you to obtain the favours that I seek. Please recommend my request to Mary Queen of heaven so that she may intercede with you before her son Jesus Christ. If these favours are granted I will love you more and more and be better prepered to spend eternal happiness with you in heaven. St Therese of the child Jesus pray for us. Amen.
