    “Once again I prayed to my St. Therese that surgery on my knee would be successful and recovery be good. She has helped me often during my times of surgery and I was hopeful again. After surgery and at my low point my daughter came to help with 12 yellow roses. I then knew my prayers were answered. Am doing well, progressing nicely. Thank you, sweet St. Therese.”

    “My “little” miracle through the intercession of St. Therese may not compare to many of the profound stories others have but for me, it was a sign of her generosity and love for souls. A few weeks ago, I began saying the Rosary, asking for clarity and personal conversion. I also ordered a few sacramentals for myself from a Carmelite convent. Checking the tracking, it had been rejected by my post office and was en route back to Colorado! I tried to contact USPS customer service but did not have time to hold. I was prepared to contact the Sisters, explain the bizarre situation, and pay for re-shipment. I prayed to St. Therese, asking to have my order shipped back to me, not returned. I never expected her to answer me over a trifle. The package had departed NJ, several hours away and I assumed was going back to CO. When I came home from work tonight, the sacramentals had been delivered! ”

    “There was this Sunday show in our country that featured all the saints. One of those was St.Therese who was said to help who are in need. Last 2014 I took the Licensure Examination for Teachers and asked for her intercession and promised that if I'll have a daughter, she will be named after her. Last May 2017, I asked foe her help again for my boyfriend who took the Civil Engineers' Board Exam, and he passed again. For the last time this year, I'm asking for her help for my brother who is now taking the Civil Engineers' Board Exam this November 2017 and thru St. Therese's help, I know he'll pass the exam. ”

    “Recently I underwent a very delicate surgery and to assure me that all was going to be well, St Therese sent me an anesthesiologist whose name was... Dr. Rose. Upon learning his name, this sense of peace and traquility came upon me. She was there holding my hand and making sure everything was taken care of. With gratitude!”

    “At two months old I was hospitalized with spinal meningitis. I needed a miracle as I would not make it thru the night. My godfather asked the nuns at the local Carmelite monastery to pray. They gave him a relic and assured him that they would pray thru the intercession of St. Theresa of the Little Flower. The next day I was better but the doctors told my anxious parents the damage was already done. I would never walk, talk, see, hear and would spend a lifetime as a mentally challenged person. Nothing the doctors said came true. I was healed. Fifty years later an acquaintance approached me with a manilla envelope. I opened it to see a pic of The Shrine of St. Theresa in Alaska. The next morning I was asked to pray for a baby that was a few months old, dying and needed a miracle because he had spinal meningitis! I prayed via the Little Flower. Three days later the baby was healed! Amen.”

    “I'm 67 years old and when I was a small child of about 3, my Dad was called to serve in the Korean War. He and my Mom would exchange letters daily. There was a week when she received no letters and she became concerned for his safety. Mom prayed to St. Therese and asked for a sign of pink roses that my Dad would be coming home safely. The next morning we went to visit my Grandma and when my Mom opened her refrigerator there was a beautiful bouquet of pink roses that a friend had given her. That very same day Mom received the long awaited letter from Dad telling us he would be coming home the following week. St. Therese holds a very special place in our hearts, as she gave us all peace in knowing our family would be whole again.”

    “There are many times she has interceded in my life. But only last week, she answered my prayer of helping me pass the licensure examination for guidance councelors. I am now a Registered Guidance Counselor. Thank you St. Therese! Help me to follow your little way each day everyday in this profession. ”

    “My Mom was dying and I asked her to send me a rose so I knew she was in heaven. She died Aug.2, 16. Last fall I had 2 minature rose bushes that were dead so I dug them up and got rid of them. Last night as I was going to get clothes off the clothesline I glanced at my flower garden and amongst the weeds was 1 minature red rose. It was such a wonderful feeling. I know this story will bring other's to St. Therese. Thank you St. Therese for all you answered prayers! Amen. I love you St. Therese!”

    “Several years ago I was a middle school teacher. I had taken about 75 students to see a performance of "A Diary of a Young Girl". I was so proud of my students. I had prepared them well to be respectful and courteous. I was even given a complement from the theatre staff. What my students didn't know was that my husband had recently been laid off. I was worried and concerned, but still determined to do the best I could to provide a meaningful experience to these deserving children. After lunch, a number of the students had seen a street vendor and presented me with a gift as we were boarding the bus to return to school. My gift was roses. St. Therese is my patron saint and I always turn to her in prayer. I knew then that things would be fine. Shortly thereafter my husband was offered a job. That was 10 years ago and he is still at the same company. I will always be grateful.”
