  1. Perhaps I just wasn’t aware, but I always struggled to see how these novenas directly impacted me. That changed today. I’ve known for a while that I needed to go to confession and I finally (through the help of Mary) brought myself to go this morning. My confessor was able to get me to be more honest with myself than I have been in quite a while and just as I was completing my penance, the local florist walked in with two vases of white roses. I could only shake my head in awe.

    Thank you, Lord, Mary and St. Therese!

  2. Thank you St Therese for revealing many roses to me tho I did not realise at the time as it was at a funeral. let me first ask u to pray for the departed soul of Amos Mutuku Muli who was a good friend,collegue and confidant. I’m devasted by the loss n pray that you give his family strength to go on each day. Give him eternal peace. Amen.

    St Therese the saint of the roses I believe my intentions are being answered, pliz pray for my patience as I continue waiting and praying for a miracle in my relationship with Patrick that it will end up in a marriage in the Catholic Church. despite all the odds of at the moment I pray for inner peace and the lack of feeling lifeless with each passing day. Give me strength to face each day.

    Amen

I do not know how to help him, other than pray and ask for intercessions for him. He is a good young man, and most of his friends have married and are starting to have children. Please intercede for him to our Lord that Nicholas will find a good Catholic, Christian girl who holds the same faith values that he holds. I love you St. Theresa and come before you.

    For Jackie that she has more self confidence and finds true friendship where we live now and that she has guidance on where to go to school.

I dont know if its coincidental bec its valentines day … but this morning I attended a plant inauguration and flowers were at the lobby and saw a bouquet of very beautiful orange tulips that were given to my lady boss. Later in the afternoon, I received my bunch of roses via e mail from a friend. Though I did not receive fresh flowers, it still made my day and I know this is St. Therese’s intercession. Thank you Lord!

  42. I prayed to St Therese to help me get a job after I had been looking for almost a year. Soon after I finished my novena, the boy whom I was seeing showed up with a rose which was a beautiful orange colour – not typical red that a man might give. The relationship ended very shortly after but what I didn’t realise at the time was that the rose was a sign that St Therese had answered my prayer as I was offered the job I really wanted shortly after. It was one of my first novenas and I truly believe it worked.
