Novena to Saint Teresa of the Infant Jesus: First Day

St. Therese Holy Card from our wedding • Blessed Be God prayer book

"After my death, I will let fall a shower of roses. I will spend my heaven doing good upon earth. I will raise up a mighty host of little saints. My mission is to make God loved..."

The feast day of St. Thérèse is coming up! Her feast is celebrated on October 1st (New Calendar) and on October 3rd (Traditional Calendar)... We celebrate both feasts in our home!

"The Roman Catholic Church celebrates the feast of St. Therese, the Little Flower, on October 1st each year. This date was chosen because Therese died on September 30th. Following the ancient custom of celebrating their entrance into heaven the next day, October 1st was chosen as the day to celebrate Therese's life and eternity. Some people may remember that her feast day was previously October 3rd. That date was established for several reasons, including a packed liturgical calendar. In the liturgical renewal of the 1970's, when the calendar of saints was updated and refined, St. Therese's feast was properly moved to the more appropriate October 1st date. It is interesting to note that St. Therese's home Church in France celebrates her feast day on the last Saturday of September, no matter what the date." - Society of the Little Flower

Novenas for her intercession can be prayed anytime. In anticipation of her upcoming feast(s), we are starting another nine day novena (Novena to Saint Teresa of the Infant Jesus found in Blessed Be God) for a special intention, now through the eve of her feast. I will share the prayers for each day here on the blog.

*Another beautiful novena to St. Therese is the Rose Novena. It was the very first Novena I prayed to her and I'll be praying it as well. I've shared the printable prayer card here


Novena to Saint Teresa of the Infant Jesus
The Little Flower of Jesus

Prayer for Each Day

O GLORIOUS TERESA of the Infant Jesus, through whose unshaken confidence God was so glorified, obtain for me the same filial trust and love which animated thy innocent heart and soul. Grant that I may practice self-abnegation, patience and confidence, and that my confidence may be a fountain of blessings which God pours out upon me. As confidence was for thee the key to the greatest treasures of God, so it may induce me to throw myself into my Saviour's arms and say with David: "In Thee, O my God, I put my trust, let me not be confounded." Amen. 

First Day
PRAYER

O ALMIGHTY God and Creator of all things, Who to banish from human hearts lukewarmness in Thy service and inflame souls in divine love, hast enriched the soul of Thy Little Flower with such unshaken faith that she desired most ardently to give her life for Thee: I beseech Thee, by the merits of the lively faith of Saint Teresa of the Infant Jesus, to infuse into my soul such an ardent faith that I may firmly believe all the truths taught by the Holy Catholic Church, and practice all the virtues until death.   Our Father, Hail Mary, and Gloria...

Act of Oblation of Saint Teresa of the Infant Jesus

MY LORD and my God! O Most Blessed Trinity! I desire to love Thee and to make Thee loved by mankind. Since Thou hast loved me so much as to give me the only begotten Son for my Saviour and my Spouse, the infinite treasures of His merits are mine. These merits I offer to Thee with joy, beseeching Thee to behold me only as in the Face of Jesus, and in His Sacred Heart burning with love. Moreover, I offer Thee all the merits of the saint - in heaven and on earth - together with their acts of love, and those of the holy Angels. Lastly, I offer Thee, O Blessed Trinity, the love and merits of the Blessed Virgin, my dearest Mother. To her I entrust this oblation, begging her to present it to Thee. Amen. 

Holy Child Jesus, have mercy on us. 
Our Lady of Victories, pray for us. 
Saint Teresa of the Infant Jesus, pray for us. 
Little Flower of Jesus, pray for us. 
Amen.

Exaltation of the Holy Cross


X is for the CROSS
when we can't have our way, 
"All for Thee, JESUS,"
we must then learn to say






The celebration of Holy Mass has the same value as the Death of Jesus on the Cross.

- St. Thomas Aquinas






From here on earth, Love cannot live without suffering. It is through loving the cross that we discover His Heart, for divine Love never lives without suffering.

- St. Bernadette Soubirous


From the archives:




I adore You, O glorious Cross, which was adorned with the Heart and Body of my Savior Jesus Christ, stained and covered with blood. I adore You, O Holy Cross, out of love for Him, Jesus, who is my Savior and my God.

(Pope Pius IX declared that reciting this prayer five times on Friday will free five souls from Purgatory and 33 souls by reciting it on Good Friday. This prayer should be recited before a crucifix with a contrite heart and praying a few minutes for the Pope.)

Small Things With Great Love






"St. Teresa gave her life to the poorest of the poor,
She brought the love of Christ to the easy to ignore, 
Chugga, chugga, choo, choo!
She heard the call while on the train,
the Missionaries of Charity would help to ease their pain."

St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta Missionaries of Charity Doll Habit from The Little Habit

My girls are amazing! While I slept from 2:00-6:30 pm yesterday (I finally got some of that extra sleep I'd been praying for... I just couldn’t keep my eyes open following the two shots the doctor gave me to stop an allergic reaction to a wasp sting/bite that caused my face to swell... Ouch! Thankfully my 18 year old was around to drive me to and from town and then take his sister to the orthodontist.) my girls baked and decorated Chai Cupcakes for Mother Teresa’s feast day!

You can find all sorts of additional ideas in honor of Mother Teresa in the archives

St. Teresa of Calcutta, Pray for us!

{pretty, happy, funny, real} :: Fifteen

~ Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life ~

{pretty}


Our beautiful girl turned 15 today!!


{happy}

 
 

Most of our focus lately has been on selling the house and getting ready to move, but we took the day off and I was so happy to get to spend some one-on-one time with just the birthday girl.  Dutch Bros for coffee and tea, shopping for new clothes including a pretty new cardigan from Grandma, then lunch at Mod Pizza... It was such a nice day! 


Grandpa also stopped by for a little visit and brought us all dinner!
(Mexican take-out including flan for the birthday girl) 



  


   

She loved all of her birthday gifts! We had hoped to buy her a set of golf clubs (she is still using borrowed clubs from the high school which will need to be returned when we move) but that will have to wait for now... Instead, in addition to some new clothing from our shopping trip, she received a leather tote, pink wristlet, a journal and a water bottle. She also received a box of Reece's Pieces from her 8 year old sister, a lovely hand-embroider handkerchief made by her 13 year old sister, a new golf shirt from her dad (we all miss him so much but he was able to FaceTime from fire camp!), and lots of cards and phone calls from friends! She also received a card from Fr. Gordon (Uncle Jim) who said he'd be offering his Mass for her today ♥ God bless all of our holy and faithful priests!


{funny}

Fourteen month old "Grace" was such a distraction during our family rosary... 😘🤗😘
(please excuse her pre-bath lack of pjs, this was just too cute not to share) 





Here is one more video... Chiquita put it together as another gift for her big sister! ♥


{real}


Don't you think real flowers look so pretty on top of cakes?! 
I decorated a Chocolate Ganache Cake (Chocolate Cake, Dobash Fudge Filling, Espresso Butter Cream, and Chocolate Ganache) from the bakery with some pink roses for the birthday girl! 


 
 

Happy 15th Birthday!

On the Solemnity of the Assumption








Assumption Prayer

Holy Mother Mary, we all rejoice with you today on the feast of your glorious Assumption into heaven. Long ago in the Garden of Eden, our first parents, Adam and Eve, we told that they would have to earn their bread in the sweat of the their brow, and that the earth would be cursed, bringing forth thorns and thistles. Now, after Christ our Redeemer has come, and taught us how to make use of the thorns and thistles of this life, and turn them into blessings, you, like Him, have been taken up body and soul into heaven, There, with your divine Son, you await our coming, and prepare a place for us. Mother Mary, it is a great comfort to us to realize that your precious body, the tabernacle of the infant Christ, is now in heaven with Him. Your being taken into heaven is also, like the resurrection of Christ’s body, a pledge to us of the resurrection of our own bodies. It is wonderful to think that these hands, with which we earn our bread now in the sweat of our brow, will, because of the merits of Christ, one day, with our bodies, be glorified forever in heaven. O most pure Virgin Mary, help us to realize this as we go about our work from day to day. Help us to have great respect for these bodies of ours, and for those of others because we recognize in them the temple of the Holy Ghost, and because we look forward to seeing each other, body and soul, with you and you Son Christ forever in heaven. Amen.

Our 2018 Used Book Sale :: Moving Sale



It's time for the 8th Annual Curriculum Sale Blog Hop! 
You can find all the details, browse books for sale on other blogs, or add a link to your own post here.

We will be moving in a couple months and I really need to cut back on the quantity of books we own...  I wish I had another few months (at least!) to sort through all of our books, but as it is I haven't had much time between our teens' summer camps, house hunting, and preparing our home to sell. So far I've come up with five or six boxes of books to sell and have started to list them in this post. Be sure to check back as I continue to update this post throughout the week. 

If you are interested in purchasing any of the items in this post, please leave a comment listing the books you would like, along with your email address. (The email address box is part of the comment form here at Shower of Roses and it won't be displayed publicly.) I will send you a private email with your total, including shipping, along with my Paypal address to send payment.

Once invoices are paid, I will ship your books via media mail which usually takes 7-14 days. In the past I've always charged a flat rate shipping however this year minimum shipping is $5.00, after that shipping will be by actual weight/cost.

Please only request items that you intend to purchase and are able to submit payment for promptly. Comments are moderated, but I will do my best to approve/publish them as quickly as possible and update the post with "sales pending." If multiple visitors request the same book it will be sold to the first request. I'm also open to reasonable offers on any of the books listed and will probably drop the prices on anything that is left at the end of the sale. Thank you!
