Catholic Prayer to Saint Therese, The Little Flower The Chaplet of Saint Therese consists of 24 beads which commemorate the years of her life, plus one additional bead. On the first bead, recite this prayer: "Saint Therese of the Infant Jesus, Patroness of Missions, Pray for us." On each of the twenty four beads, pray the “Gloria” in honor of the Blessed Trinity, and in thanksgiving for giving the world the little saint who lived only twenty-four years. The chaplet is concluded by saying the Catholic Prayer to St. Therese. "St. Therese, the Little Flower please pick me a rose from the Heavenly Garden and send it to me with a message of love Ask God to grant me the favor I thee implore and tell Him I will love Him each day more and more."
