O Little Flower of Jesus, ever consoling troubled souls with heavenly graces,
in thine unfailing intercession I place my confident trust.
From the heart of our Divine Savior, petition the blessings of which I stand in greatest need, especially….

(here mention your intentions)

Shower upon me thy promised roses of virtue and grace, dear St. Therese,
so that swiftly advancing in sanctity and perfect love of neighbor,
I may someday receive the crown of life eternal.

+Amen
Just yesterday I was wondering if you'd be back to post any more novenas for us.  Good timing!  Thanks.

Day 1
St. Therese of the Infant Jesus and the Holy Face.  It is said that this devotion brought St Therese of Lisieux, "the Little Flower", to her great sanctity.

This is her prayer to the Holy Face:

    O Jesus, who in Thy bitter Passion didst become "the most abject of men, a man of sorrows", I venerate Thy Sacred Face whereon there once did shine the beauty and sweetness of the Godhead; but now it has become for me as if it were the face of a leper! Nevertheless, under those disfigured features, I recognize Thy infinite Love and I am consumed with the desire to love Thee and make Thee loved by all men. The tears which well up abundantly in Thy sacred eyes appear to me as so many precious pearls that I love to gather up, in order to purchase the souls of poor sinners by means of their infinite value. O Jesus, whose adorable Face ravishes my heart, I implore Thee to fix deep within me Thy divine image and to set me on fire with Thy Love, that I may be found worthy to come to the contemplation of Thy glorious Face in Heaven.  Amen.

St. Therese of the Child Jesus, pray for us.

As with the Glory be's novena, the above prayer should be said as often as possible.
+ Day 2
