O Little Therese

 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 to grant

 the favors

I now place

 with confidence

in you hands...


St. Therese,

help me to always believe

as you did, in God's great love for me,

so that I may imitate your

 "Little Way" each day.
