Christmas Rose Novena

I seem to be running a day behind in posting my Novena's this year but here is another one for you to contemplate.
The Christmas Rose Novena to St. Therese begins on the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, 12 days before Christmas. Yes I am a day late!
It is prayed  12 times per day for 12 days to honor the 12 years of Christ's childhood.


Remember, O Gracious Little Rose Queen, your promise to spend your heaven in doing good on earth and even, if necessary, to come down to help those who ask your aid. If it is God's Holy Will, and my dispositions are pleasing to Him by their honesty and true desire for goodness, keep your promise to shower roses and send me some visible sign of your heavenly friendship for me and for those I love. In memory of the great interior enlightenment you received on a certain Christmas of your early life, ask God for a ":Christmas Rose" for me in these my urgent needs, that I may experience an increase in faith, hope and confidence. (Meditate, here upon your petitions so that St. Therese can understand why your are asking her to assist you.) I desire to know and to accept real objective truth about life and death. Give me assurance that you understand and will remain my heavenly friend, so that one day we may be together with God. Keep your promise to give some answer! Amen.

St. Therese of Lisieux ~ Pray for us!

Blessings to you and your homes,

Dear Trish,
I am thrilled to know this was a help to you. I have been concerned over the last few days for you as I just felt something wasn't right with you.
Praying espcially for you.
