A Morning Prayer Written by Saint Thérèse

O my God! I offer Thee all my actions of this day for the intentions and for the glory of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I desire to sanctify every beat of my heart, my every thought, my simplest works, by uniting them to Its infinite merits; and I wish to make reparation for my sins by casting them into the furnace of Its Merciful Love.

O my God! I ask of Thee for myself and for those whom I hold dear, the grace to fulfill perfectly Thy Holy Will, to accept for love of Thee the joys and sorrows of this passing life, so that we may one day be united together in heaven for all Eternity. 

Amen.

Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus, pray for us!

  2. Jessica, Thank you so much for these. I had been looking for a prayer to start or homeschool day and since St. Therese is my favorite saint, and my daughter's middle name is Therese, I will be printing this up and using to start our school day. I really love your blog and have been following it and using it for many projects for years. I thought of you and your family this past weekend when we attended the World Meeting of Families and the Papal Mass, raising up a prayer for you--knowing you would be here if you didn't live so far away. I could not believe how many wonderful Catholic families attended both (18,000 at the World Meeting of Families from all over the globe). Please keep the posts coming, especially the wonderful ideas that link homeschooling to the Liturgical calendar (like these for St. Therese), and your wonderful parties. PS. My daughter waited until St Therese's feast day to start her Stitching with the Saints St. Therese doll she received for Easter. Thanks for sharing with us ideas for faith-filled gifts.
