St. Therese Novena

(September 22nd to September 30th inclusive)

Remember, O Most gracious Rose Queen, your promise of never leaving any request made to you, without an answer, and of coming down to earth to do good. Full of confidence in your
power with the Sacred Heart, we implore your intercession in our need and beg of you to obtain the Rose we so urgently request if such be God’s Holy Will. Amen.


Dear friends of Carmel,

You are invited to join us in our novena to St. Therese from September 22nd to 30th inclusive.

St. Therese’s sister, Celine, was a very gifted artist. Celine painted the above picture depicting St. Therese sending down her shower of roses united with the drops of blood of Jesus who died for love of us.

We have enclosed a pamphlet on the demolition of our first monastery (see below). We ask St. Therese in this novena to help us with this project, and also for an abundance of good vocations; young women who are willing to live a hidden life of love following in the footsteps of St. Therese. But most especially we offer this novena for you and your intentions. We pray that St. Therese may watch over you and your families. Let us have confidence in her intercession with God’s merciful love.

Your humble sisters in Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
The Carmelite Nuns
