The Twenty-four “Glory be to the Father’s” novena can be said at any time. However, the ninth to the seventeenth of the month is particularly recommended, for on those days the petitioner joins in prayer with all those making the novena.
The “Glory be to the Father” praising the Holy Trinity is said twenty-four times each of the nine days, in thanksgiving for all the blessings and favors given to Saint Theresa of the Child Jesus during the twenty-four years of her life. In addition, this, or a similar prayer may be used:
Holy Trinity, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost,
I thank Thee for all the blessings and favoUrs
Thou hast showered upon the soul of Thy servant Theresa of the Child Jesus,
during the twenty-four years she spent here on earth,
and in consideration of the merits of this Thy most beloved Saint,
I beseech Thee to grant me this favour,
if it is in accordance with Thy most Holy Will
and is not an obstacle to my salvation.”
After this Prayer, follow the twenty-four “Glory Be’s,”
between each of which may be included this short prayer:
“Saint Theresa of the Child Jesus,
pray for us.”
