    “I was confirmed last year and really struggling with some of my old ways. I would hold one of her medals in my hand as I slept to get me through the dark night of my soul. I gave the medal to someone who needed it. And haven't been able to get another one yet. As I write this, I recall that I carry a prayer card to her with a piece of cloth that was touched to her relics. I firmly believe she has been with me praying to Our Lord since I have actually had more growth even now than when I had the medal. Thanks for your prayers St Therese!!”

    “I fell in love with my beloved St Therese over 30 years ago. Countless times in my life since I have received her precious roses. They come in all forms, especially fresh flowers. She continually hears my prayers and intercedes for me. She has been with me as I lost first, my beloved father and then my beloved mother. Through a difficult divorce and the medical issues and conditions of so many of my family members and friends - always with her timely delivery of her precious roses. She intercedes for me and dispels my anxiety. My beloved St Therese has brought people into my life that I needed and eliminated situations and relationships that were not good for me. Ask her - often - for yourself and for others - she is truly miraculous and loving. Thank you Jesus for the miracle of our St Therese - she is there for all those who call on her miraculous intercession. I love her always. ”

    “Recently I was very worried about a medical situation. I prayed to St. Therese and almost immediately my eyes glimpsed a rose. I knew Therese was with me. I am especially in touch with her today since this is the anniversary of her entrance to Carmel. Therese I love you. R”

    “There have been so many times that St. Therese has blessed me with intercession. She is such a loving Saint whom I am forever grateful. I have been in the company of so many roses from her. There are too many to list. But perhaps one of the ones that I will always remember is when I was walking along a path at our park in the early spring. I had prayed to her for her intercession and for a rose. I looked down and there on the path in front of me was the most beautiful red, perfectly healthy and fresh rose petal. To this day I will always know that St. Therese put it in my path. There were no roses anywhere around. I have walked that park hundreds of times and no bushes exist. Even if there was one it was early spring and there was no chance a rose would even be in bloom. It was no accident. I still have it and I keep it pressed in her book. Please know that she will help you. ”

    “ I am disabled {otherly-abled} and am homeless and live in the woods and have St. Therese as an inspiration. Her love, courage, faith, humility and forgivingness are inspiring. I only have to think of her "Story of a Soul" and other writings to be inspired. I think of Eternity in Heaven and all problems in this exile pale in comparison.”

    “St.Therese has never left my side, no matter what came my way. In 1980, I was in a car accident, hitting a tree at 95 miles an hour. I was exposed to harmful chemicals at work, leaving me bedridden for six years and I’m now permanently disabled. I was a witness to my husband’s suicide. During all my trials, St. Therese’s Story of a Soul reassured me. She suffered great pain during her life, too. Her “little way” is the only way I have survived and will continue to survive. I know I have her example of Love and Grace and the promises made by Jesus to bring us home to Our Father into His Kindgom. Thank you, Little Flower!”

    “My relationship with my friend in heaven began in 6th grade when I attended Shrine of the little flower grade school. I was ridiculed by the kids there terribly. It affected my health- I quit eating. I was healed from anorexia and have remained free of that affliction today. Then I got married and due to my husbands health we needed intercession to have children. I prayed for roses and received three of them all which have her name... Mara Rose Maizy Rose, Michael Ray Martin. I found small fabric roses in a church w Mara and in the hallway of my home each time before finding out I was pregnant. And now I am found with my fourth miracle Owen who will soon be baptized at Shrine of the little flower church because of the kindness of Fr. Bob Fisher. I was following sin and committed very serious and hurtful sins. With her grace and love I was blessed and forgiven. She is my friend in heaven”

    “St. Therese has answered so many of my prayer requests that I regret now that I did not keep a written record! St. Therese is a good friend to me. Her story has brought me so much comfort. Because of her, I never feel unloved anymore--her trust of Jesus is "contagious" and her willingness to be His servant is the guarantee of happiness here on Earth! She is my sister in Christ and I love her very much. No problem is too insignificant to her--what a friend. Thank God for St. Therese, the Little Flower! Catherine”

    “I have a very simple faith - lively, but simple. I asked St. Theresa to Ask God to get all in my family confirmed in the Faith....and then I waited. I waited and waited and waited for a rose. None came. I stopped waiting. I thought God said no or not yet. One afternoon, turned on the television and there they were - 100's of them, 1,000's of them, spilling off the tables, onto the ground - the camera panned back - they were building a float for the rose bowl parade - guess God said OK...”

    “St. Therese is always there in prayer. She is always with you. My sister, who I never met, died before I was born. She was hit by a car before she could take her confirmation name, Therese. Our mom put St. Therese's face on her tombstone!”
