I began asking St. Therese for her intercession 2 months ago. I’ve been praying for a reconciliation of my relationship, asking her to pray to the Lord that my ex and I could find our way back to eachother. I am ready and willing to accept God’s will, even if that means we don’t reconcile- but it never hurts to make known your requests to the Lord, so I continue to pray for that special intention. I saw many improvements in my situation when I started praying. I also asked St. Claire, St. Jude, Scared Heart, St. Expedite for assistance.
I saw roses on TV and rose bushes, but never actually got a physical rose or the scent of a rose- but I always knew she was hearing my prayers, because I was praying with a pure and open heart- hoping that all the fears, insecurities and obstacles that drove my ex and I apart will be healed.
This Monday I visited my ex at his house. As I walked in the front door, I saw a single rose on his window sill. I took a double take. I had been praying for the reconciliation of our relationship for so long- and the day I visit his house (first time I’d been back in months), I saw a rose on his window sill! Seemed weird. I also had dreamt a dozen yellow roses the night before- and in my dream I remember saying- “St. Therese has sent me my own roses- she hears me”. So I thought may be it was a coincidence- may be roses were on my mind and that’s why I dreamt them- and may be it was a coincidence that there was a rose at his house.
Well when I got home from our visit, I checked my email. And I got a message from an old friend who I hadn’t heard from for a long time- the email was about St. Therese, and there was a picture of roses in it and a prayer. I was floored, I was now certain that even though she didn’t send me my own roses- this was her way of saying- “I hear you, keep praying”.
If there was any doubt in my mind about her power and her caring, all doubt was erased. I saw 3 sets of roses in 24 hours- and previously I only saw them on tv…I was so happy, renewed with faith and relaxed on Monday. I am still a bit sad- that we haven’t yet reconciled, but I know the Lord is working on it. The answer to my prayers may be a reconciliation, it may not be a reconciliation, it may even mean waiting longer- but I know regardless of the outcome- my prayers are being heard.
So no I never really got the scent of roses- but her roses are really the comfort and faith you get from praying…so it’s not necessarily a physical thing.
I have gained so much since I started to pray-!!! Her roses were just a validation…so for 2 months I prayed with no roses of my own- you just have to be patient they show up either in the literal or figurative form!!!
