The Rose Foundation for Children, Inc., is a non-profit corporation organized and operated exclusively for charitable purposes, to provide relief to poor, distressed, underprivileged and sick children in the USA and abroad. It is named for St. Therese of Lisieux, whose legacy is to send “showers of roses” to those who pray to her.
Oh little Therese of the Child Jesus, please pick for me a rose from the heavenly gardens and send it to me as a message of love. Oh Little Flower of Jesus, ask God today to grant the favors I now place with confidence in your hands (mention your request). St. Therese, help me always believe as you did in God’s great love for me, so that I might imitate your “Little Way” each day. Amen.
Oh glorious St. Therese,whom Almighty God has raised up to aid and inspire the human family, I implore your miraculous intercession. You are so powerful in obtaining every need of body and spirit from the heart of God. Holy Mother Church proclaims you a prodigy of miracles, the greatest saint of modern times. Now I fervently beseech you to answer my petition (mention here) and to carry out your promises of spending heaven doing good upon the earth…of letting fall from heaven a shower of roses. Little Flower, give me your childlike faith, to see the face of God in the people and experiences of my life, and to love God with full confidence. St. Therese, my Carmelite Sister, I will fulfill your plea to be made known everywhere and I will continue to lead others to Jesus through you. Amen.
Oh Lord,who has said: “Unless you become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven,” grant us, we beseech Thee, to walk in the footsteps of thy blessed Virgin Therese, with a humble and single heart, that we may attain everlasting rewards. Amen.
