St Thérèse of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face,
teach us to follow
your way of confidence and trust.
Help us to realise that a Father’s love
watches over us each day of our lives.
Obtain for us the light to see,
in sorrow as in joy,
in trials as in peace,
the loving hand of our Father.
Give us your own faith and trust,
so that we may walk in darkness,
as in the light,
holding fast to the way of love,
knowing as you did
that everything is a grace.
