St. Teresa of Avila Novena Prayer

previous | next | all novenas

St. Teresa of Jesus, holy mother,
wholehearted servant of love,
teach us to walk with determined fidelity
along the path of interior prayer,
attentive to the presence
of the Blessed Trinity,
God dwelling deep within us.
At the school of Mary our Mother,
strengthen within us these foundations:
a genuine humility,
a heart free from attachment,
and an unconditional love for others.
Share with us your intense
apostolic love for the Church.
May Jesus be our joy,
our hope and our energy,
an unquenchable Fountain
and our most intimate Friend.
Bless our Carmelite family.
Teach us to make your prayer our own:
“I am Yours; I was born for You;
What is Your will for me?”
