Please sign the guestbook to "St. Therese of Lisieux: A Gateway"

Never in my 50 years has anything had remotely as great an impact on my spirituality as has your Story of a Soul. None but your own words could have so eloquently described your journey of the "little things" to the fullness of Christ Jesus.
Tearfully I regret that while visiting Bayeux, France some ten years ago with my wife and children, I decided that we NOT visit your home and shrine in nearby Lisieux, despite my wife's fervent request that we do so.
At the time I had not even the faintest notion of the spiritual greatness of Jesus' "Little Flower." Instead I allowed my worries of our family being stranded in France to override the opportunity of just one more afternoon in Normandy - at Lisieux - because of a national worker's strike there. How many opportunities we are afforded but we fail to see them!

Saint Therese, I pray for your intercession to bring me to spiritual health, and to make my family whole again, if that is God's Will.

Happy Birthday Dear Blessed Louis Martin,

God of eternal love, You give us Blessed Louis and Zelie Martin, the parents of St. Therese, as an example of holiness in marriage. They remained faithful to You in all the duties and trials of life. They desired to raise their children to become saints. May their prayers and example help Christian family life to blossom in our world today.

If it be Your Will, grant me the grace I now ask of You, through the intercession of Blessed Louis and Zelie Martin, and let them be counted among the Saints in Your Church. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

“If you wish to be a saint—and it will not be hard—keep only one end in view: always do everything in order to please Jesus.” --St. Thérèse of Lisieux

Thank you, my sister and my friend, for leading me to Fr. Marie-Eugene of the Child Jesus.

Thank you for the many roses you have given me. Help me and all your followers to do the three essential things:
* Keep our focus always on Jesus, especially His face, so that we may live constantly in His presence.
* Be absolutely faithful and good in discharging our duties and responsibilites, just as you were.
* Act always with love, for love, in love so that our lives may become not a devotion or a secret path but a pure testimony to the eternal primacy of Love.

St. Therese, I thank you for the roses that you have shown me (lots of times...especially when my heart is doubting). In your little way, you whisper to my heart that I should never lose hope & trust in Our Lord & our Immaculate Lady. Thank you from the very bottom of my heart & soul for your intercession to our Lord Jesus Christ. May I be like a little child in trusting that everything is already in God's plan & that He has already sent His angels to bring the blessings & graces from Him. Thank you & I love you!

This is an amazing site, It's good to see people still appreciate Saint Therese!

Im not Catholic and never go to church but recently I became amazed by some extraordinary testimonies and stories of some Catholic saints namely, St Therese and Our Lady of Lourdes.
Its also a conincidence that I am going through an extremely difficult time where in just a few weeks Im getting married in a foreign country and I have no money at all except my return ticket.
I am therefore seeking God in prayer through St Therese for assistance.I know Im not a pure or holy person and I dont know if God listens to my prayers, All I know is the Blessed Lady of St Therese is such a loving, kind, warmth and amazing saint whom God has Blessed. From the honesty of my heart and the truthfulness of my soul.
May the precious Lord Bless you and keep you by his side.

Happy New Year to everyone... :)

O sacred and adorable Trinity, hear our prayers on behalf of our holy Father the Pope, our Bishops, our clergy, and for all that are in authority over us. Bless, we beseech Thee, during the coming year, the whole Catholic Church; convert heretics and unbelievers; soften the hearts of sinners so that they may return to Thy friendship; give prosperity to our country and peace among the nations of the world; pour down Thy blessings upon our friends, relatives, and acquaintances, and upon our enemies, if we have any; assist the poor and the sick; have pity on the souls of those whom this year has taken from us; and do Thou be merciful to those who during the coming year will be summoned before Thy judgment seat. May all our actions be preceded by Thy inspirations and carried on by Thy assistance, so that all our prayers and works, having been begun in Thee, may likewise be ended through Thee. Amen.

Catholic Prayers
