O little St. Theresa of the Child Jesus, who during thy short life on earth didst become a mirror of angelic purity, of love strong as death, and of wholehearted abandonment to God, now that thou rejoicest in the reward of thy virtues, cast a glance of pity on me as I leave all things in thy hands. Make my troubles thine own------speak a word for me to our Lady Immaculate, whose flower of special love thou were------to that Queen of Heaven "who smiled on thee at the dawn of life." Beg her as the Queen of the Heart of Jesus to obtain for me by her powerful intercession, the intention I yearn for so ardently at this moment,that the Lord will send a holy priest from a Traditional Order in communion with the Pope to Cedar Rapids on a full time basis, and that she join with it a blessing that may strengthen me during life. Defend me at the hour of death, and lead me straight on to a happy eternity
O GLORIOUS St. Joseph, thou who hast power to render possible
even things which are considered impossible, come to our aid in our
present trouble and distress. Take this important and difficult
affair under thy particular protection, that it may end happily.
May the Lord send a holy priest from a Traditional Order in
communion with the Pope to Cedar Rapids on a full time
O dear St. Joseph, all our confidence is in thee. Let it not be said that we would invoke thee in vain; and since thou art so powerful with Jesus and Mary, show that thy goodness equals thy power. Amen, St. Joseph, friend of the Sacred Heart, pray for us.
