  5. Dear Saint Therese,
    I had a wonderful life, a woman with whom I was deeply in love with, a big beautiful house and so much more. I used to thank God everyday at least once a day for the wonderful life he had given me, but because of my wife’s sudden fickleness I lost it all. Now things are going wrong all around me, Just today the child support enforcement people took all of my money out of my account leaving me $23.234.00 over drawn, but the worst part about it is I have been paying my child support. The only thing that helps me now is drugs and alcohol. I didn’t do anything wrong I was a good husband, a good father and now I feel like the buzzards are getting ready to finish me off . Please Please Please Saint Therese Help me. Ask Jesus to heal my life and make all things new again. I’m too depressed to have faith any more. Your intervention would be greatly appreciated, Thank You.
    Marty

  6. Thank you St Therese G is to start a new drug soon and it it hoped that this will stop the spread of his Lymphoma and even cure it. Please stay with him and heal him. Sacred Heart of Jesus I place all my trust in you, Immaculate Heart of Mary pray for us. St Therese please hear and answer our prayers

  7. St therese please intercede for me in my prayer request.
    Im feeling so lost in the world today and nothing making sense anymore.
    I feel im on the right path spiritually but I feel im lost here on earth and my time probally has come to a end.
    Poverty is making it allmost impossible for me to help god on earth maybe if I was in heaven I could help those on earth much better.

    • I know exactly how you feel, I have lost everything, my wife, my house, my car, I haven’t seen my daughter in almost a year. My life was happy and I thanked God every day for all the good and wonderful things I had in my life and then, out of the blue I lost everything and even though I have been paying child support the child support enforcement people have taken all my money just today. I’m overdrawn $29.234.00 and I’m disabled. I just had surgery on my right hip and I need surgery on my left hip before I can go back to work. The only thing that keeps my spirits up are drugs, mostly morphine and klononpin. Like you I feel like I’m going down in flames and I have no one here to help me. BUT YOU HAVE GOT TO KEEP YOUR SPIRITS UP.
      Think about receiving the things you want, think about those things that make you happy and if you need to talk to someone feel free to reply to me. Smile, somehow every thing will be ok

St Therese please hear and answer my prayers. Amen

  9. I’ve been saying this Novena and I received a sign from St. Therese. This one is very nice as well.

    The Twenty-four “Glory be to the Father’s” Novena

    The Twenty-four “Glory be to the Father’s” novena can be said at any time. However, the ninth to the seventeenth of the month is particularly recommended, for on those days the petitioner joins in prayer with all those making the novena.

    The “Glory be to the Father” praising the Holy Trinity is said twenty-four times each of the nine days, in thanksgiving for all the blessings and favors given to Saint Therese of the Child Jesus during the twenty-four years of her life. In addition, this, or a similar prayer may be used:

    “Holy Trinity, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost, I thank Thee for all the blessings and favors Thou hast showered upon the soul of Thy servant Therese of the Child Jesus, during the twenty-four years she spent here on earth, and in consideration of the merits of this Thy most beloved Saint, I beseech Thee to grant me this favor, if it is in accordance with Thy most Holy Will and is not an obstacle to my salvation.”

    After this Prayer, follow the twenty-four “Glory be to the Father’s,” between each of which may be included this short prayer:

    “Saint Therese of the Child Jesus, pray for us.”

    ORIGIN OF THE NOVENA

    Father Putigan, a Jesuit, began the Novena to Saint Therese of the Child Jesus on December 3, 1925, asking the glorious Saint for one great favor. For nine days he recited the “Glory be to the Father” twenty-four times thanking the Holy Trinity for the favors and Graces showered on Saint Therese during the twenty-four years of her life on earth. The priest asked Saint Therese, that as a sign that his novena was heard he would receive from someone a freshly plucked rose. On the third day of the novena, an unknown person sought out Father Putigan and presented him with a beautiful rose.

    Father Putigan began the second novena on December 24 of the same year, and as a sign, asked for a white rose. On the fourth day of this novena one of the Sister-nurses brought him a white rose saying:

    “Saint Therese sent you this.”

    Amazed, the priest asked:

    “Where did you get this?”

    “I was in the chapel,” said the Sister, “and as I was leaving I passed the altar above which hangs the beautiful picture of Saint Therese. This rose fell at my feet. I wanted to put it back into the bouquet, but a thought came to me that I should bring it to you.”

    Father Putigan received the favors he had petitioned of the Little Flower of Jesus, and promised to spread the novena to increase devotion to, and bring her more honor.

    In this fashion, from the ninth to the seventeenth of each month, those who want to participate in the Twenty-four “Glory be to the Father’s” novena, should add to those of their own, the intentions of all who are at that time making the novena, thus forming one great prayer in common.

    The intercessory prayers can be found on Catholic websites. For information about St. Therese, please visit Catholic Online at the following link: Saints
