The Song of the Rose Fairy Best and dearest flower that grows, Perfect both to see and smell; Words can never, never tell Half the beauty of a Rose -- Buds that open to disclose Fold on fold of purest white, Lovely pink, on red that glows Deep, sweet-sented. What delight To be Fairy of the Rose.
St. Therese of Lisieux! It's true that when you pray a Novena to her you will receive a "shower of roses". The fist time I prayed a Novena to her I got a mug with roses on it (and this quote) for Christmas, and the second I got a rose bush for my first Communion!
Novena ~St Theresa the little Flower, pick me a rose from your heavenly garden and send it to me with a message of love. Ask God to grant me the favor I implore and tell him I will love him daily more and more.
