NOVENA TO ST. THERESE

Please join the Nuns in praying this Novena. It is an original hymn written by the Nuns of Fairfield.

Dear St. Therese, without a doubt we know,

Your favorite work in Heaven is to help us here below.

Then send down, we pray, your flowers from the skies

And send the funding that we need to make these buildings rise.

Search out gen’rous souls. Give hearts a loving prod

To donate all the necessary means to make this monastery -

Help us build this house of Mary

Build this house of God.

True indeed you’ve left us roses: your words and deeds, your life and death,

A rich example of loving God with every breath.

But now that you have power in Heaven and see the Father face to face,

Come visit us with blossoms eternal, with heavenly aid and gifts of grace.
