Saint Therese of the Child Jesus
Origin of the Novena
In December of 1925, a Jesuit named Father Putigan , began a Novena to Saint Therese of the Child Jesus. He asked Saint Therese for a great favor and for nine
days he recited the "Glory be to the Father" twenty-four times thanking the Holy Trinity for the favors and Graces showered on Saint Therese during the twenty-four years of her life on earth.
He asked Saint Therese, that as a sign that his novena was heard he would receive a freshly plucked rose. On the third day of the novena, an unknown person sought Out Father Putigan and presented him with a beautiful rose.
Later, in the same year, Father Putigan began a second novena. This time, as a sign, he asked for a white rose. On the fourth day of this novena one of the Sister-nurses brought him a white rose saying:
"Saint Therese sent you this."
Amazed, the priest asked:
"Where did you get this?"
"I was in the chapel," she answered, "and as I was leaving I passed the altar. Above the altar, there hangs a beautiful picture of Saint Therese. This rose fell at my feet. I wanted to put it back into the bouquet, but a thought came to me that I should bring it to you."
Father Putigan received the favors he bad petitioned of the Little Flower of Jesus, and promised to spread the novena to increase devotion to, and bring her more honor.
This began the custom of praying this novena from the ninth to the seventeenth of each month. Although it is not necessary to pray this novena on these particular days, those who participate in the Twenty-four "Glory be to the Father's" novena from the ninth to the seventeenth of the month, should add to their own petitions, the intentions of all who are, during that time, making the novena. This forms one great shared prayer.
Genuine China jade are the twenty-four beads which represent the twenty-four years of her short life. Antique silver-tone filigree beads space the jade and take us to the pewter center which frames her photo. Its back reads “St. Therese pray For Us.” As we begin this novena, we ask that Saint Therese to send us a rose. We symbolize this by beginning the chaplet with a red lampwork rose. A gemstone cross completes this precious chaplet which measures 10”.
Your chaplet will be shipped in a silk pouch and gift box and will come with information on it’s origin and instructions for it’s prayer.

The Chaplet of St. Thérèse is made of
a medal of St. Thérèse, and one large bead which is followed by
twenty-four smaller beads.
This prayer is recited on the large bead:
St. Thérèse of the Infant Jesus, Patroness of Missions,
Pray for us!
On each of the twenty-four beads, in honor of the
Blessed Trinity and in thanksgiving for giving the world the little saint
who lived only twenty-four years, pray the following:
Glory be to the Father, and the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end.
Between each Glory Be, say "Saint Therese of the Child Jesus, pray for us".
The chaplet is concluded by saying the Prayer to St. Thérèse:
St. Thérèse, the Little Flower, please pick me a rose from the
Heavenly Garden and send it to me with a message of love.
Ask God to grant me the favor I thee implore, and tell Him
I will love Him each day more and more.
"Without love, deeds, even the most brilliant, count as nothing."
