Prayer to Saint Therese of the Child Jesus

O Little Therese of the Child Jesus,
Please pick a rose for me
From the heavenly gardens
And send it to me
As a message of love.

O little flower of Jesus,
Ask God today to grant the favors
I now place with confidence 
In your hands.

(Mention your specific requests)

St. Therese,
help me to always believe,
As you did,
In God's great love for me,
So that I might imitate your
"Little Way" each day.

Amen

Pope Francis


Pope Francis delivered his address to the thousands of pilgrims who had gathered in St. Peter's Square, many of whom had brought with them little statues of Baby Jesus to be blessed by the Holy Father. The traditional “Bambinelli Blessing” takes place each year on Gaudete Sunday.

The Pope told  the crowds that, while the first two weeks are centered  on remaining “spiritually vigilant” in expectation of the Lord's coming, the third week of Advent calls for “another interior attitude”: joy.

“The heart of man desires joy,” he said. However, the joy which Christians are called to live and  give witness, he said, “is that which comes from nearness to God, from his presence  in our lives.”
