  33. As most everyone knows, St. Therese is known as “the little flower of Jesus”. On Friday, October 1st, as I got in my car to come home from work, I could distinctly smell the aroma of flowers in my car, which was closed and locked all day long, and there are no flowers anywhere in the vicinity of the parking lot where I parked. I knew immediately that St. Therese had interceded for me and she was letting me know that the intentions I had prayed for during the Novena were heard by Jesus. I have always believed that even if our prayers are not answered within the time span of a Novena, God still hears our prayers and honors those prayer requests in His time, now ours. This was confirmed to me through St. Therese in my car on her feast day. St. Therese, PRAY FOR US!

  34. All of my working career in fine art sales – I have worked on commission. In other words, no project, no money. Now at 78, I am still doing it. For at least 40 years, I have turned to Our Lord as my marketing agent. And I have prayed most of the Carmelite Novenas. St. Therese has often helped me in stunning ways … i.e. one year I sold an important painting out of the blue on her Feast. In 1997 I was involved in the creation of a new sculpture of St. Therese of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face for the Chapel Niche of the Carmelite Monastery in Philadelphia. This Novena year I asked a special intention to find a new unique sculpture project. Yesterday, on October 1, I received a lead which excites me greatly, and after conferring with the Sculptor team, I will seek out the potential. And I praise and thank the Lord and St. Therese, and even if it come to naught, I still thank them with all my heart.

  35. I prayed that my son and his family can be able to find a suitable house for their moving back and I also prayed for the improvement my grandson’s eczema. Thanks God they have signed a deal one house before their plane took off. And my grandson’s eczema condition has been improving. Thank God! Praises and Glories to my Lord my God! Thanks St. Therese of Lisieux🙏🙏🙏

  36. Thank you for blessings received. I prayed for resolution with a relationship Of my daughter and this has happened as well as her taking action to figure out why these things happen. Also, my prayer regarding employment is beginning to be addressed..

  37. I prayed for good results from a cat scan. Received
    good results. I am still waiting for the answer to another prayer. Thank you St Therese.

  38. Not this Nivena but the last one I was granted the new job I prayers for! Praise the Lord! Thank you Lord and for all who prayed!

  39. For 9 days I prayed that my son would get his daughter back. On feast day he received a letter in the mail that his daughter is being returned to him. Thank you Saint Therese for prayers answered.

  40. On the 2nd day of the St. Therese novena, in the morning, I saw that my favorite rose bush has given me 1 rose. That rose bush has not produced any flowers for the past few or maybe 6 months or so. I even thought it was dying. Then mid-morning I got a call from a company that I have applied for and was offered a job! On the 9th day of the Novena, I got an email from another company for an interview! St. Therese has really worked for me for this, has intercede for me and has showed me her help through that 1 rose I saw that morning. I felt hope and blessed already without knowing yet why. Thank you so much St. Therese for your prayers. Thank you for this novena and for the founders of this website who continually brings people to pray together. May God bless us all always.

  41. I thank God for the prayer answered.Am în the UK and applied for Resident’s permit on the 29th of July.During this Novena,I requested St Therese to intercede and make possible the reply to come,on or before the nine days Novena.Lo and behold,I got my resident permit card this morning the 2nd of Oct and on the card shows that my permit was granted on the 29th of September 2021.This a prayer answered and I want you the praying family to rejoice with me.Praise be to Jesus and Honor to Mary.Amen.

  42. Praise the Lord! After almost two years of praying for a job in my daughter’s field of study, yesterday she was offered just that. Answered prayers!

  43. Thanks be to God!

    Through the intercession of St. Therese, my prayers were answered on the feast day, October 1.

    My prayer was to find gainful employment —wherever God wanted me to serve him best. Lo and behold, I received an offer of employment on October 1 at a faith-based institution. Praise be to God and honor and thanks to St. Therese.

  44. Having been a past member of Theresians, I looked forward to this new novena! I ended up in the hospital at the beginning of this week with massive blood clots that were starting to damage my heart. Although I wasn’t able to be upright every day in order to read through the devotionals every day, I did follow most. I ended up having surgery to bust the largest and most dangerous clot. I am so grateful for the blessings I received through this past week while I was in the hospital. God is so good!

  45. As we continue trusting God in all our daily lives, I thank God for answering my prayers. At the beginning of our novena for St. Theresa I committed our children having relocated from USA to see all their process of settling and our God is faithful since they are already settled and we continue praying for them that our good Lord open new opportunities for them. That they may never lack in their lives. AMEN.

  46. On Tuesday, September 28th, after several days of desolation, my prayers were answered. At my Catholic/ecumenical prayer ministry, prayers were amplified by two non-Catholic pastors and a Catholic priest and prayer ministry leader’s prayers: I was told ty the two pastors when I was prayed for, that God would directly answer me and direct me … I was to go to my secret place. There is a chapel with 24 hour Eucharistic Adoration. I completed the time with the Lord there…but it began by my walking over to Our Lady of Lourdes grotto / garden after the evening’s ministry teachings, worship, and the individual prayer I received. As I sat there, the Lord dictated at least fifteen direct Words to me. Chief among these astonishing Words was: ” As we speak, as you listen to Me, I am healing the situation.” I received one Word after another, and quickly wrote them all over a notebook page. When the Lord stopped the many things He was saying to me in His Word, I went over to the 24×7 Eucharistic Chapel as I had originally intended. I sat there in Peace, the Perfect Peace that the two Christian pastors had said would occur. I left. When I returned to my car, my family member had reached me via text on my phone, and the miracle I had thought would never come…some days ago in my desolation…was strongly evident by the words in the text. I felt a quiet joy and perfect peace: I knew that St.Therese was involved in this miracle, as she is in so many. No shower of roses could have brought me more peace, and renewed understanding of the Lord’s Presence and Abiding Love, and His Healing.

  47. I have been suffering with severe past nasal drip for a while now. I have taken so much medication. I am so tired of taking medication So I prayed about it.I am better now . Thank you St Theresa for your powerful intercession .

  51. Good Morning All,

    During St. Therese Lisieux Novena, my prayer was answered financially. I was looking for money to start an online business and one of my friend gave me the money which I have invested in the online business. I thank St. Therese for interceding for me and I want her to continue to Intercede for me so that this online business will grow so I can use it to pay all the debts that I’m owning. I give Almighty GOD all the glory for answering my prayers through the intercession of St. Therese and asking HE to bless that my friend abundantly.

  52. When I started this novena I was getting depressed because of my daughter’s story of only meeting people who want premarital sex before marriage. I asked our st Therese to intercede for her so that she will be blessed with a good husband soon that will not ask for premarital sex before marriage, we have not seen one yet but I am believing God that through st Therese intercessions one will come soon. I am happy and no longer depressed.
    Our health is restored back in the family.
    Thank you Jesus and thank you st Therese for your intercessions and God’s blessing on John Paul and Annie for praying for us Amen

  53. I would like to say, my prayers are being answered, even when I don’t get what I request from God, as I say if it be his will and

  56. The Lord answered one of my many requests that I didn’t think would be possible. He answered my cry for help with getting an approval for an increase in my property tax to be spread over 5 years which cut down my mortgage payment tremendously. Our Lord Jesus has surely blessed me and heard my plea for help. I praise you and thank you my loving God for your love and mercy.

  57. Thank you Saint Therese for answering my prayers for a new job. It is true, that we should be patient in life and that often, disappointments are sent to remind us not to lose faith and that God knows best. I am so grateful.

  58. St Therese of Lisieux interceded for me.. more I see at least how to ask help to find the community to live with & serve God.

  84. My grandson Angelo was released from the hospital after running very high temperatures. We’re still awaiting his test results.

  85. My grandmother on my mom’s side was a Third Order Carmelite. She taught me about St. Therese’s shower of roses from my childhood. Much later, I found myself in a very busy ER, having been called there by the nursing home where my paternal great aunt was taken after a fall. While I was sitting in the waiting room, a woman carrying a large bouquet of flowers in one arm and dragging a suitcase with the other sidled through the cramped aisle between the rows of filled seats. As she passed me, the bloom of a rose snapped from the bouquet and fell at my feet. Once she got by, I picked up the blossom and sniffed deeply. It provided a welcome balm for my soul on a cold January day. I happened to notice it was 4:00. When I got home, my mother called to say she had spoken to her sister, with whom Grandmother lived. My aunt had arrived home from work to find her dead. We learned she had had a stroke. The investigator estimated that the time of death was 1:00 California time, which was 4:00 where I live in Ohio when the rose “showered” down on my shoe. An awesome blessing and a consolation upon the death of this Carmelite!

  86. Thanksgiving that we finally got a buyer for our house and will close on it next week. Thank you Jesus, Mary, Joseph and our
    sweet St. Theresa. I also received a rose today from our grand daughter.

  87. My dear friend has been suffering with disabling mental illness. This week, her depression, anxiety, and paralizing mental confusion have lifted. We know Jesus is working in her life. Thank you for your prayers.
