The spirituality and message of St Thérèse of Lisieux became known to millions through the publication of her autobiography Story of a Soul a year after her death. Here we hope you will find some insight to the intensity of her love for God, her prayerfulness and knowledge of Scripture and the simplicity of her life.

NOVENA PRAYER TO THE SERVANT OF GOD,
SISTER FRANÇOISE-THÉRÈSE (LÉONIE MARTIN)
(With grateful acknowledgement to the Sisters of the Visitation,
Visitation Monastery, Caen. France)

Lord our God,
Through the example of Sister Françoise-Thérèse,
Léonie Martin, You have given us an understanding
of the mercy and the tenderness of Your Love.


You watched over her fragile health
from the first hours of her life.
You supported her in the difficult times
of her childhood and adolescence.

You called her to the consecrated life,
and You sustained her
on the delicate path of her response.
You inspired her to lead a hidden and humble life,
to accept her limitations and to offer herself
as a gift to your Love, as a Visitation nun at Caen.

Lord, if such is Your will,
deign to grant us the grace
that we ask of You (...)
through the intercession of the Sister Françoise-Thérèse.
May she, one day, be counted
among the Venerables of your Church.

Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

       Imprimatur: +Jean-Claude Boulanger, Bishop of Bayeux and Lisieux (January 24, 2015)
