I've been concerned about my vocation lately. Then last Sunday, I went to mass and the priest spoke of St Therese's book and how she wrote a lot on the topic. Truthfully, I don't read many religious books, but this stuck with me, so a few days later I started listening to it online and found it quite moving. Today, I started praying her novena. I'm praying for my little cousin (who I found out is having some health concerns), but I also couldn't help but think of my own vocation troubles (which was the reason I turned to St. Therese in the first place). Anyways, today before mass and after starting her novena, I was at Starbucks listening to her book in line. I stopped only to place my drink order, then went right back to listening. I gave my real name (Kelly) to the barista, however when my order was up, "Rose" was written on the cup. I triple checked. It was my order. No one waiting around me was named Rose. The barista had just misheard my name, but I could not ignore the significance. I mean come on! How do you hear Rose from Kelly, unless there's some holy intervention?! As my prayer today was for both my cousin and my vocation, I'm not sure which St. Therese has prayed to be granted. Maybe because her "rose" was given to me via caffeine she's saying she's pulling double duty on my behalf? I went to mass an hour early so I could pray the rosary. I prayed to say thank you and to find the meaning of this rose. And of course, I cried while praying. First day of saying the novena and St. Therese has already given me a gift. How blessed am I?! I cried from joy, but also felt guilt that I was now praying for understanding. Shouldn't the rose be enough? Can I really ask for more? As I walked towards the ladies room to clean up my face before mass, I noticed someone had left rose petals at the bases of all the church's statues. Then once mass began, the homely was about asking God for the wisdom to understand what he gives us. Which is what I had prayed for in my rosary. I'm still not sure what to make of this blessed day. I still have a few chapters left of her book and four more days of her novena, so we shall see. However, my heart is so full and grateful. God truly takes care of his little children that cry out to him. I'm now sharing my story here because I didn't know who to tell, so thank you for listening.

2007 through a novena I asked that my wife would return to the Church. Time went on, but no roses. Being an over the road truck driver, I'd get home every two or three weeks.One winter day, as I was reading my e-mail, all of a sudden there was a strong smell of roses in the house. I asked my wife where are the roses, I smell roses, she replied, there weren't any and she couldn't smell them! I dismiss it. Three weeks later came home, same thing happened. Dismiss it again. Another three weeks, and it hit me like a ton of bricks! I said thank you St. Therese for answering my Novena. My wife said what Novena? So I told her, that I had made the Novena, and St. Therese was letting me know, my prayer/request, would be answered. Fast forward, 2009, Saturday before Advent, we had been shopping, and I told my wife that I would like to stop at Church and go to confession before Advent season started. My wife said I need to go also! She did, and received Communion at Mass that day. I told her what my Novena had been, and she smiled, and said thank you. She passed away the following January 31st. Thank you answering my prayer Lord, and St. Therese, for interceding!

Saint Therese's statue is in my parish but I have never prayed to her or not much given her any attention until my 16 month old daughter started walking around her statue. I have always prayed directly to Jesus or Mother Mary and thought that I didn't need any intercession. Until I found a prayer book and a bracelet in front of her statue. It has story of her life and how people's prayers are being heard by means of receiving roses so few days ago I have started my devotion and gave it a try. On my first day of the novena, I ask mother Therese to show me a sign by receiving white rose/s if she has heard my prayer. That same day, I went to costco and a man I front of me at the cash register was holding a two dozen of white roses and I thought to myself it's just pure coincidence and I said I need someone to physically give me the roses. Then on my second day of the novena, I was cleaning the washroom and emptied out the garbage can and I found a foam rose that someone gave to me on my bridal shower. And asked myself what it was doing in the trash. I totally slipped my mind I have a white rose that I display on top of my toilet for decoration but it puzzled me how it got to the trash. My daughter is not tall enough to reach it and placed it in the bin. That moment, I stood still and felt a beautiful feeling that saint Therese had visited my home. On my third day of novena, my mother in law came to visit me at home and had mentioned that she had just came to a grocery store and she said bought a plant of roses. I asked her why roses since she doesn't like or normally keep or plant roses at her house. She said she she would like to plant some roses since her roses are withering at home. Then I went online to search personal stories of people's experience with saint Therese. And the very first story I read is from a women who is traveling to my native land and had changed flight in Vancouver, which is where I reside. Saint Therese is my new friend and will definitely continue to place my devotion to her. God bless everyone.

I want to thank St.Therese for interceding with the Blessed Mother for my daughter. She was going on the wrong path in life especially since she has learning disabilities and struggled with school. It wasn't until the 9th grade that things went really wrong. I became desperate and turned to prayer. I had a rosary with a St. Therese medallion and I felt compelled to pray for her intercession. It was as if she understood my fears and I felt a calm. When I prayed she let me understand that my daughter will be alright. I made some drastic changes in my daughter's life; we changed her school and her friends. I knew that God willed it because I felt good about this decision even though my child didn't. She struggled for the first year there but was making progress and made good friends. It was a private school and I couldn't afford it, but the Lord found me a job that I could pay for it. Now she has graduated and was on the honor roll in all her terms. She still has issues to deal with but the Lord and His saints, with special mention to St. Therese who took up my cause, are continually praying for her. Thank you little Saint Therese. Thank you Heavenly Lord and all of the angels and saints who watch out for us. Thank you and God bless.

I'm 60 years old now, but in 2nd grade I was kneeling down in front of the statue of St. Therese and praying to her to help my mom and dad to stop fighting. While praying to her I looked up and she winked at me! I was so excited I tried to tell my mom what happened. She was talking to someone else at the time and she ignored me, like "Okay, now go away." I read years later that when St. Therese was sick, the statue of the Blessed Mother smiled at her and changed her life. I'll never forget that day. She is my favorite saint.
