O Saint Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the throne of God, I place in you all my interests and desires.

O Saint Joseph, do assist me by your powerful intercession and obtain for me from your divine Son all spiritual blessings through Jesus Christ, Our Lord, so that having experienced here below your heavenly power, I may offer my thanksgiving and homage to the most loving of fathers.

O Saint Joseph, I never weary of contemplating you and Jesus asleep in your arms. I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart. Hold Him close in my name and kiss His fine head from me, and ask Him to return the kiss when I draw my dying breath. St. Joseph, patron of departing souls, pray for me. Amen.

St. Therese,

Thank you for all of my blessings. Please intercede to reunite CB and me forever, faithfully. I ask that he contact me soon. Please surround our love with divine protection so no one can come between us. Please remove the blocks keeping us apart. Please stop all the correspondence and distractions. Please send me a blatant sign we will be together again. I pray he will be my date and my life partner for O&P's wedding. I feel like I'm seeing signs lately. I'm praying it's true.

Please heal my relationship with CN. I miss my friend so much. Please intercede to help fix this. I ask that you send me a sign that we will be friends again. When I saw what he did to our communications I was truly heartbroken. I feel like I lost my best friend.

Please let all be good at work. I don't want to work the long hours, but to be consistently busy without all the extreme stress. Please keep J and me gainfully employed and let her remain my supervisor and protect me.

Please give me the strength to lose weight so I can be healthier and feel more confident.

I love and remain faithful to you always

Dearest St. Therese,

I love you and thank you for all the miraculous intercessions you have given me!

I ask you to have good news for my mom tomorrow and that her advisor has all the paperwork ready, correct and ready for her to sign as well as the attorney office. Please please let this happen tomorrow with all documents ready to be signed. It has been very nerve wracking for she and me.

Please please bring my children all very wonderful spouses very soon. Let the girls especially meet someone very very soon that is wonderful Catholic men. Bless them each with healthy and wonderful marriages and healthy children of their own. Please bring Daniel a wonderful wife that we all love so much. Let their marriage be healthy and wonderful. Bless them with children of their own and are healthy.
Let D and I fight less and be a great example of marriage to our kids.

And please please open my sister, R's mind up to forgiveness and grace to my mom and me. We have not hurt her. Please ask Jesus to convict her heart and let my Mom and me back in her life. Please I ask for a miracle here. And that my other siblings are loving and respectful to both mom and me. Bring a miraculous peace and reparation to our family.

I thank you so very much! I await your roses.
