On this the Little Flower's feast....

My dearest Saint Therese, pray for us!
Send us a shower of roses
to know you've heard us
roses of grace
the grace of Jesus
falling on us poor souls
who grow weary in our struggle
Pray for us to be strong and courageous
as you were, Little Flower.
Little Flower of God's tender garden
pray that we'll remain faithful to the end
of our lives, doing little things
with great love.
Show us your Little Way every day
and may we finally join you in heaven
at the feet of our beloved Jesus
to be lifted up to his most Sacred Heart
as you were lifted in his arms
to nestle there near his Heart.
Take our prayers there, Saint Therese,
and tell Jesus we are grateful
for his Divine Mercy and
we will offer our sufferings, great and small,
for the poor souls who are not grateful.
For as you said,
"Love can only be repaid by Love."
