O little flower of Jesus,
with great innocence and humility
you loved the Lord
and prayed for His Church
and especially His priests;
in all the little things of your day
you gave yourself to God’s service,
and so your work reached
to the ends of the earth –
shower roses upon us from above,
where you now sit with Jesus;
teach us to walk your little way
that we might join you
with our Savior.
Pray we too might find His love
and live in His heart
as deeply as you;
pray all souls shall indeed be saved
by the blood He shed for our sake.
And pray that families
will be blessed as your own
with children who heed so well
the call of the Lord.
