Let us take our inspiration from St John of the Cross, a Carmelite Saint and Doctor of the church who says that we will do more good for the church with less effort and please God more, if we give significant time to prayer; we will also gain strength of spirit. He says our prayer would merit it. (see Spirit Canticle 29).
Prayer is very powerful, if would like to join the Prayer Ministry please email email@example.com or phone the Parish Office on 02 9144 6998.

NOVENA TO ST THERESE
O Little Therese of the Child Jesus
Please pick for me a rose
from the heavenly garden
and send it to me
as a message of love.
O Little Flower of Jesus,
ask God to grant the favors
I now place with confidence
in you hands
( mention your special prayer request here )
St. Therese, help me to always believe
as you did, in God's great love for me,
so that I may imitate your "Little Way" each day.
