(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,
The feast of St. Therese (October 1st) is drawing near. We invite you to join us in our novena to this great saint, from September 22nd to 30th inclusive, making it a spiritual preparation and asking her to intercede for all our needs and the needs of our loved ones.
In her autobiography, ‘The Story of a Soul’, which she wrote under obedience, St. Therese taught us her “little way of love”. She reflected in her life the love of God and love of neighbor that Jesus himself showed us. This is the way to heaven. In the communion of saints, one of the joys of heaven will be to meet those who prayed for us and those for whom we have prayed.
St. Therese, send your shower of roses upon us and upon the whole world!
Your humble sisters and servants in Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
The Carmelite Nuns
