Teresa of Jesus

Prayer for the Intercession of St. Teresa
Feast Day – Oct. 15

Most Holy Trinity,
In the words of the Psalmist
St. Teresa “stands in awe of your Word.”
With her we contemplate your majesty and your truth as depicted in Sacred Scripture.
You shared divine Wisdom with her,
and opened to her the treasures of union
with your Word, Jesus Christ.
As she responded in joyful praise
and closeness to you,
may she help us to grow
in unwavering friendship and service to you.

V/ St. Teresa, pray for us.
R/ That God’s Word may be proclaimed by our lives.
