St Thérèse: the prayer for the Lancaster visit

93 days ahead of the relics' arrival in Lancaster, today we publish for the first time the prayer which has been written for the Lancaster visit. It is addressed to the Lord rather than to Thérèse herself, but includes an invocation asking for her intercession. Please use the prayer and share it with others in the run-up to the visit. It will also be in frequent use while the relics are with us.

Lord Jesus,
We thank You for Your gift of
Saint Thérèse to our world.
May her courageous confidence
in Your loving providence and
her burning desire to make
You known and loved
be a constant inspiration to us
as we seek to follow in her
“Little Way” of total loving.

Saint Thérèse, pray for us
