St. Teresa of Calcutta Novena
(Click here for Spanish)
Teresa was called from this world on
September 5, 1997. As we approach the
anniversary of her death, we invite you to
say this special prayer each day. We would
also like to hear from you about how Mother
Teresa impacted your life with her example
and teaching. Please share with us why you
are grateful to God for Mother Teresa, and
what you learned from her. If you had an
opportunity to meet her or be in her
presence, we also invite you to share what
that was like.
|Father of Life,
You always defend the
poor and oppressed.
In St. Teresa of Calcutta, You raised up
a voice for the voiceless
And a friend
to the poorest of the poor, the unborn
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
Asking them how we could tell people
not to kill one another
a mother to kill her own child.
Father, as we honor this humble and faithful
We ask you to give us the grace
To follow her example.
May we be bold in word and generous in
To love and serve the unborn
And to awaken our world to know, as Mother
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. Amen.
