St. Thérèse of Lisieux Novena 2022, Day 2: Daughter of a Saint

SCRIPTURE READING
Ephesians 6:1–4

Honor your father and mother

Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother”—this is the first commandment with a promise: “so that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.”

And, fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.

MEDITATION
Prayer of a Child of a Saint
PN8, Stanzas 6

O Papa! remember

Remember your little queen,
The orphan of Bérésina.
Remember her uncertain steps.
It was always your hand that guided her.
O Papa! remember that in the days of her childhood
You wanted to keep her innocence for God alone!…
And her blonde hair
That delighted your eyes
Remember!…

PRAYER

St. Therese of the Child Jesus,
remember your promise to do good on earth;
send your shower of roses in abundance
on those who call upon you,
and obtain for us from God the graces
we are waiting to receive from His infinite goodness.

mention your intentions here

God our Father,
you have promised your kingdom
to those who are willing to become like little children.
Help us to follow the way of Saint Thérèse with confidence
so that by her prayers
we may come to know your eternal glory.
Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
God, forever and ever. Amen.
