A Novena to St Thérèse of the Child Jesus for the Emmanuel Schools of Mission-Feast Day

Feast Day: St. Thérèse never doubted that her life had meaning

Today, October 1st, is the Feast of Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus. She is one of the Patron Saints of the ESM (Emmanuel Schools of Missions), present in 7 countries and 5 continents. We invite you to be actors by joining us in this Novena and pray for all of the 7 schools, the team, the youth and all those who participate (professors, benefactors, volunteers…) in this mission.

Day 1: Help them to love you more
Day 2: Help them to rely on your providential care
Day 3:  Help them to be aware of your presence
Day 4:  Humble service to others
Day 5: The gift of forgiving
Day 6: Everyday as a gift 
Day 7: An opportunity to rely completely on You
Day 7: Pray with confidence for those who do not believe they can be loved

On this Feast Day, let us pray as well for the alumni of all the ESMs (including Vienna, Fatima, Lisbon), the former team members, the collaborators, … May the Lord continue to bless them and give them joy & peace wherever they are.

We thank each and everyone of you for taking part of the ESM mission through this Novena.

If you have any testimony about a grace or blessing that you received, and you’re happy to share it, please write to us (news@emmanuelco.org) !

May the Lord, through the intercession of St. Thérèse, shower you with roses and blessings!
