St. Thérèse for Families

St. Thérèse, Little Flower of Jesus, by the memory of the love your parents had for you and the affectionate care of your sisters, obtain for my family and for those of the entire world the blessings of a loving and secure home–life. Ask the Lord to fill parents with a spirit of devotion and self–sacrifice and children with obedient love, so that all homes may be like the home of Nazareth. Safeguard all families; assist those in difficult situations. Inspire a spirit of forgiveness and reconciliation among members of families plagued by anger and resentment. May the Holy Spirit pour out his light and love so that every family may be a reflection of the Holy Family. Amen.

The Saints on Prayer

Pray as though everything depended on God. Work as though everything depended on you. ~Saint Augustine of Hippo

What prayer could be more true before God the Father than that which the Son, who is Truth, uttered with His own lips? ~Saint John Chrysostom

He who prays most receives most. ~Saint Alphonsus Maria de Liguori

Without prayer nothing good is done. God’s works are done with our hands joined, and on our knees. Even when we run, we must remain spiritually kneeling before Him. ~Saint Luigi Orione

Have confidence in prayer. It is the unfailing power which God has given us. By means of it you will obtain the salvation of the dear souls whom God has given you and all your loved ones.” Ask and you shall receive,” Our Lord said. Be yourself with the good Lord. ~Saint Peter Julian Eymard
