Novena to Blessed Teresa

On Friday, August 28 we will start a Novena and meditations to Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, found here. Priests for Life is also starting a special novena to Blessed Teresa of Calcutta. The novena will end on September 5, the anniversary of her death, in 1997.

"Keep the JOY of loving God in your heart and share this JOY with all you meet especially your family. Be holy – let us pray." ~ Mother Teresa

Prayer to Blessed Teresa of Calcutta
(prayed each day of the novena)
Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, you allowed the thirsting love of Jesus on the Cross to become a living flame within you, and so became the light of His love to all. Obtain from the Heart of Jesus (here make your request). Teach me to allow Jesus to penetrate and possess my whole being so completely that my life, too, may radiate His light and love to others. Amen.

Immaculate Heart of Mary,
Cause of Our Joy, pray for me.
Blessed Teresa of Calcutta,
pray for me.
Mother Teresa Novena
Father of Life,
You always defend the poor and oppressed.

In Blessed Teresa of Calcutta,
You raised up a voice for the voiceless
And a friend to the poorest of the poor, the unborn child.

She brought women away from the despair of abortion clinics
To the hope of a loving community That cared for her and her child.
She spoke the truth to men and women of power,
Asking them how we could tell people not to kill one another
While allowing a mother to kill her own child.

Father, as we honor this humble and faithful woman,
We ask you to give us the grace
To follow her example.

May we be bold in word and generous in action
To love and serve the unborn
And to awaken our world to know, as Mother Teresa said,
That the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion.

Fill us with love, bring us peace, and let us share your life forever.
We pray through Christ our Lord.
