Virtual Tour: National Shrine of St. Therese of Lisieux
edit_button

For some time I have been hoping to stop by the National Shrine of St. Therese in Darien, IL.  Today I managed to stop by after Mass.  Despite the modernist chapel there, the rest of the museum was beautiful with the traditional and beautiful artifacts from the life of St. Therese.  The Shrine holds several reliquaries with 1st Class relics in addition to numerous 2nd class relics.

Below are images from that Shrine.














O Little Therese of the Child Jesus,
Please pick a rose for me
From the heavenly gardens
And send it to me
As a message of love.

O little flower of Jesus,

Ask God today to grant the favors
I now place with confidence
In your hands.


(Mention your specific requests)


St. Therese,
help me to always believe,
As you did,
In God's great love for me,
So that I might imitate your
"Little Way" each day. Amen




O Glorious St. Therese, whom Almighty God has raised up to aid and inspire the human family, I implore your Miraculous Intercession. You are so powerful in obtaining every need of body and spirit from the Heart of God. Holy Mother Church proclaims you 'Prodigy of Miracles... the Greatest Saint of Modern Times.' Now I fervently beseech you to answer my petition (mention here) and to carry out your promises of spending Heaven doing good on earth...of letting fall from Heaven a Shower of Roses. Little Flower, give me your childlike faith, to see the Face of God in the people and experiences of my life, and to love God with full confidence. St. Therese, my Carmelite Sister, I will fulfill your plea 'to be made known everywhere' and I will continue to lead others to Jesus through you. Amen
