Novena to St. Teresa of Avila - Second Day [Oct. 7th, 2006|06:12 am]
O most merciful Lord Jesus Christ! we thank Thee for the great gift of hope which Thou didst grant to Thy beloved Teresa; we pray Thee, by Thy merits, and by those of Thy holy spouse, to give us a great confidence in Thy goodness, by reason of Thy Precious Blood, which Thou hast shed to its last drop for our salvation.

Say one Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory be.

V. St. Teresa, pray for us:

R. That we may become worthy of the promises of Jesus Christ.

Let us pray: Graciously hear us, O God of our salvation! that as we rejoice in the commemoration of the blessed virgin Teresa, so we may be nourished by her heavenly doctrine, and draw from thence the fervour of a tender devotion; through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God for ever and ever. Amen.

Do you ever notice how at certain times a particular saint seems to pop up very strongly in your life? Teresa is very dear to me, and I had been thinking about her a lot recently. So I just started re-reading Interior Castle, and then you began the novena, and then today I came home for a week from school and in my pile of mail there was a charity solicitation that included a prayer card from Teresa. And it all comes at a time when I have been really becoming lax in my prayer life, which is why I turned back to the Castle in the first place. Anyway, thanks for posting this novena. God bless.
