Stories of the Intercession of St. Therese of Lisieux

Award-winning author Elizabeth Ficocelli shares the testimonies of dozens of women and men—from the anecdotes of common folk to the victories of celebrities like Olympic gold medal winner Tara Lipinski—whose petitions to St. Therese of Lisieux were answered with miracles.

Therese of Lisieux is universally recognized as one of the most influential saints of recent times. In times of joy, bereavement, and uncertainty, seekers of all backgrounds have turned to her for healing and guidance. Since her death at an early age, countless miracles and healings have been associated with her.

In this book, Elizabeth Ficocelli, who herself experienced such a wondrous event, gathers together stories of Therese’s grace, the “roses” she promised to send from heaven to the faithful. Book includes black and white photographs and art relating to Therese and the miracles of intercession.

Whether you are struggling with a major life transition or loss or just looking to deepen your faith, these stories will inspire an appreciation of the power of prayer and miracle in your daily life.

Reviews and endorsements

Shower of Heavenly Roses is a rich collection of stories of the friendship of Saint Therese of Lisieux. These modern women and men whose lives have been changed by the Little Flower's intercession are articulate and fascinating witnesses to the absolute reality of what Catholics call The Communion of Saints: the life-giving power of God's love, breaking the boundaries of even time and space.”
