All night vigil

Originally uploaded by Catholic Church (England and Wales).

The all night vigil began with Sung Compline, sung by at least 20 Dominican students of Blackfriars. A quiet steady stream of people came to venerate St Therese well into the night, people even arriving at 3 and 4 in the morning.

Oxford Oratory’s prayer

A teacher of prayer
to pray for us and
teach us to pray

Lord Jesus, through the life of St Therese, you have brought new hope to all who long to open their hearts to you.

Teach us the secret of her ‘Little Way’ and help us to realise that we can always talk with You and bring You our gratitude, our smiles and our tears.

Stay with us, Jesus, so that in the midst of our busy hours, we may turn to You in loving trust.

Transform each passing moment of time into a moment of prayer.

Fill every troubled heart with the confident faith of St Therese.

In joy and in sorrow, in every circumstance, may our hearts rest in Your peace.
