Novena, day four

St. Therese dressed in costume as St. Joan of Arc for a play put on in the convent.

The Twenty-four 'Glory Be's’ Novena to St. Therese

“Holy Trinity, God the Father, God the Son, and God, the Holy Spirit, I thank You for all the blessings and favours You have showered upon the soul of Your servant Therese of the Child Jesus, during the 24 years she spent here on earth, and in consideration of the merits of this, Your most beloved Saint, I beseech You to grant me this favour, if it is in accordance with Your most Holy Will and is not an obstacle to my salvation.”

After this prayer, follow with the 24 Glory Be’s, between each of which should be included this short prayer”

“Saint Therese of the Child Jesus, pray for us.”

I have a couple more pictures of St. Therese dressed as St. Joan posted at:

Let me know what you think about the picture with the crosses in her eyes. It is pretty amazing.

Blessings
