What is a Novena to to St. Therese the Little Flower?
I do not have good news. She is not getting better. Things are worse today. I fear she is leaving us. I am so confused. She is currently in ICU on a respirator. I tell you this so you will understand how serious things are becoming. Myself and our local friends, family, and many parishoners are starting a 9 day Novena to St. Therese the Little Flower, Debra's patron saint. Please join us in our prayers in whatever way you feel able.Thanks again for you thoughts and prayers
(P.S. I trust the source, and this is in regards to Debra M, one of the R&S Regulars). For those inclined, I'm sure that Tom and his family would appreciate your support and prayers.
But, to keep this a legitimate question, can someone please explain what a Novena is, and if someone wants to do this as welll, what does this mean?
