St. Thérèse of Lisieux became a Discalced Carmelite nun at the age of fifteen. Shortly before she died at the age of twenty-four, Thérèse predicted that her "Little Way" to holiness would be an inspiration for countless people. Time has proved Thérèse's prediction to be true. Since its publication, her autobiography, Story of a Soul, has been translated into over fifty languages. It is acknowledged to be one of the great spiritual testimonies of all times and has inspired millions of readers from all walks of life.
The following novena follows St. Thérèse's prayer of oblation to Merciful Love, translated by Fr. John Clarke, O.C.D. We invite you to pray along with us during the days of this novena.
