In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
Holy and loving St. Teresa, the love of Jesus on the Cross became a living flame within you, and so you became the light of His love to all. Help us to love all families! So that we may have eyes to see hurting families and helpful hands to care for them.
St. Teresa, as you loved and served Jesus through your work upon Earth, we humbly ask that you continue your work in heaven and intercede for us in our needs… (Mention your intentions here). Teach us to allow Jesus to fill us so completely that our lives my also radiate His light and love to others.
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.
Dearest Heavenly Father, our hearts have been torn open by the example of your faithful and humble servant St. Teresa of Calcutta.
This little sister was small in stature but changed the entire world in a big way through her work to care for families.
Thank you, O Lord, for instilling your love in the heart of St. Teresa of Calcutta, for it is through her heart that thousands of families have been cared for and loved. Please give us a heart as beautiful, pure, spotless and giving as the heart of St. Teresa.
Her service to families is a testament to her faith-filled heart that so lovingly touched the broken bodies of broken families and in doing so she was touching the body of Christ.
St. Teresa of Calcutta, pray for us!
