Heavenly Father, we beg you through the intercession of St. Therese of Lisieux to make The National Shrine of the Little Flower Basilica a beacon of the New Evangelization! We beg you Father, enliven every soul that comes through the doors of Shrine with divine love that can’t be held in, divine love that imbues us and overflows to others joyfully. Make us evangelists Holy Spirit! Teach us Jesus, how to share you with every person we meet. Make us courageous Most Blessed Trinity! Dearest St. Therese of Lisieux, patroness of missionaries, we beg you now in these days to help transform this parish named after you, into a parish full of vibrantly joyful missionary disciples. Heavenly Father, we thank you for the blessings to come!
