|Prayers of "Little Rose"|
Spiritual Communion of Little Rose My Jesus, I love You. I desire a million times that you come into my soul. If my tongue cannot tell You at every moment that I love You, at least may my heart repeat it at every breath. Give me the grace to suffer while loving You, and to love You while suffering and to feel this love I have for You. 0 my Adored Jesus, I thank you a million times over for having given Yourself to me in Holy Communion and in my many Spiritual Communions. Amen. PRAYER FOR HOLINESS: IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY, perfect model of sanctity, take my soul and mold it according to Your sublime perfections. Purify my heart and set it free from every obstacle to holiness, so that detached from self and the pleasures of sense, You may adorn it with the virtues and perfection of YOUR OWN IMMACULATE HEART. Then lead my soul to that divine intimacy which alone can satisfy the immense capacity for love and union with which God has created the human heart. From You I confidently hope for this grace of holiness, and I entrust my eternal destiny to YOUR IMMACULATE HEART. Amen. SUPPLICATION FOR SINNERS "0 Lord Jesus, when I reflect upon the words which Thou hast uttered: 'Many are called, but few are chosen,' I fear and tremble for those I love, and I beg Thee to look upon them with mercy; and behold, with an infinite tenderness, Thou dost place their salvation in my hands, for everything is assured to him who knows how to suffer with Thee and for Thee. My heart bleeds under the weight of affliction, but my will remains united to Thine, and I cry out to Thee: Lord it is for them that I want to suffer. . . I wish to mingle my tears with Thy Precious Blood for the salvation of those I love! Thou wilt not turn a deaf ear to my sorrowful cry . . . and Thou wilt save them." --"I was seven years old when my Jesus taught me this prayer, and ever since, I say it every day."--Marie-Rose Ferron to Rev. Emile Leonard - Jan 2, 1930 Imprimatur Albertus Valois, P.A. Vicar General, Montreal, Nov. 8, 1943 INTRODUCTIQN TO THE LITANY The Charisms in Rose's book are treated separately, but her virtues are not. They are interwoven in her life and are not treated in the abstract, but in a concrete form. For that reason some cannot see them, especially the readers who are completely absorbed in the external manifestations of her spiritual life, but the reader who loves and seeks living and concrete virtue sees them in her Charisms as well as in her daily life. For instance, in Rose's ecstasies Mrs. Evans saw the outward expression of her Union with God. In the Contemplative State ecstasy supposes Union which means not only purity of soul, but a complete surrender of the soul to God's holy Will. She saw in her stigmatization, the outward expression of her Victim soul, the compendium of all virtues. In reading "She Wears a Crown of Thorns" for the first time, all the virtues of Rose's daily life appeared to Mrs. Evans. She saw her patience, her spirit of forgiveness, her kindness, her piety, her faith and her trust in God, etc. etc.; they appeared to her so clearly that she strung them up before her own eyes, ,or rather she fanned them out in a litany to invoke her in their name. This prayer will be of some use to all, if in reading the marvels of Rose's mystical life they lose sight of her virtues.

PRAYER TO JESUS CRUCIFIED Look down upon me, good and gentle Jesus, while before Your face I humbly kneel, and with burning soul pray and beseech You to fix deep in my heart lively sentiments of faith, hope and charity, with true contrition for my sins, and a firm purpose of amendment; While I contemplate with great love and tender pity Your five precious wounds, pondering over them within me, and calling to mind what the prophet David put in Your mouth concerning You, O Good Jesus: “They have pierced my hands and my feet; they have numbered all my bones.” (Psalm 21: 17-18) May the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen. Say five Our Fathers, five Hail Mary’s and five Glory be to the Father, in honor of the Five Wounds of Jesus. Marie Rose Ferron's Prayer in Honor of the Precious Blood of Christ In life, Rose suffered immensely, and she bled from the wounds she bore from the crown of thorns. She and those who believed in her prayed in honor of the Precious Blood of our Lord. Red cord was blessed in honor of the Precious Blood of Christ. This cord was cut into small pieces and became small crosses which were taped to backings and passed out as relics. The cord had been blessed in honor of the Precious Blood, and were referred to as “Precious Blood Cord". Many prayed this small prayer frequently to obtain graces, not only of healing, but of faith and pardon for one’s sins. Cord of the Precious Blood A pious and efficacious practice recommended particularly to the sick, to glorify the Precious Blood of our Divine Redeemer and draw down its salutary benediction, is to wear the red cord blessed in its honor. PRAYER: Almighty and Everlasting God, Who appointed Your only-begotten Son the Savior of mankind, and who willed to be appeased by His Blood, grant us an increase of chartity; shed your blessings on us, that whoever shall wear this cord may merit interior contrition for his faults, be comforted in suffering and delivered form all dangers of soul and body that he may attain to life everlasting, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen (50 days indulgence) We beseech You, O Lord, help your servants whom You have redeemed by your Precious Blood. (100 days indulgence each time for Confraternity of Precious Blood Members.
