FROM THE POEMS OF ST. THÉRÈSE
TOSCATTERFLOWERS
 June 28, 1896 
(Translated by Miss Emery, USA.)
O Jesus! O my Love! each eve I come to flingMy springtide roses sweet before Thy Cross divine;By their plucked petals fair, my hands so gladly bring,I long to dry each tear of ThineTo scatter flowers!—that means each sacrifice:My lightest sighs and pains, my heaviest, saddest hours,My hopes, my joys, my prayers—I will not count the price— Behold my flowers!With deep untold delight Thy beauty fills my soul,Would I might light this love in hearts of all who live!For this, my fairest flowers, all things in my control,How fondly, gladly would I give!To scatter flowers!—behold my chosen swordFor saving sinners’ souls and filling Heaven's bowers;The victory is mine—yea, I disarm Thee, Lord,With these my flowers!The petals in their flight caress Thy Holy Face;They tell Thee that my heart is Thine, and Thine alone.Thou knowest what these leaves are saying in my place:On me Thou smilest from Thy Throne.To scatter flowers!—that means, to speak of Thee— My only pleasure here, where tears fill all the hours;But soon, with angel hosts, my spirit shall be freeTo scatter flowers,
 
FROM THE NOVENA TO ST. THÉRÈSE
O SAINT THÉRÈSE of the Child Jesus, who during thy short lifeon earth became a mirror of angelic purity, of love strong as death,and of whole-hearted abandonment to God, now that thou rejoicestin the reward of thy virtues, cast a glance of pity on me as I leaveall things in thy hands. Make my troubles thine own—speak a wordfor me to our Lady Immaculate, whose
flower 
of special love thouwert—to that Queen of Heaven
“who smiled on thee at the dawn of  life.”
Beg her as Queen of the Heart of Jesus to obtain for me by her  powerful intercession the grace I yearn for so ardently at thismoment, and that she join with it a blessing that may strengthen meduring life, defend me at the hour of death, and lead me straight onto a happy eternity.
Amen.
FROM THE PRAYERS OF ST. THÉRÈSEA MORNING OFFERING
(The original manuscript is preserved at Carfin.)
O MY
God, I offer Thee all my actions of this day for the intentionsand for the glory of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I desire to sanctifyevery beat of my heart, my every thought, my simplest works, byuniting them to its infinite merits; and I wish to make reparation for my sins by casting them into the furnace of its merciful Love.O my God, I ask of Thee for myself and for those whom I holddear, the grace to fulfil perfectly Thy Holy Will, to accept for loveof Thee the joys and sorrows of this passing life, so that we mayone day be united together in Heaven for all Eternity.
Amen.
