The Catholic Child and the Saints


My dear Child: The Saints are your Special Friends in Heaven.


They are happy with God.


They are most willing and most anxious to help you, and God is so good, He will hear their prayers for you. 


You must have your special friends in heaven before God, and you must often pray to them. 


You will wish to pray to your Patron Saint, to St. Anthony, to St. Aloysius, to St. Stanislaus, to St. Ann, to the Little Flower.

 

DEAR St. Therese, thou wert always good and obedient and always did the Will of God. Now thou art a great saint in heaven with God. 

Thy loving and tender heart rejoices to send down roses upon earth. O give me the sweet flower of a great love for Jesus! Pray for me that I may have all the graces I need.
