"O most merciful Lord, Jesus Christ! we thank
You for the great gift of hope which You did grant to Your beloved Teresa. We
pray You, by Your merits, and by those of Your holy spouse, to give us a great
confidence in Your goodness, by reason of Your Precious Blood, which You have
shed to its last drop for our salvation.
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory
O Jesus, who Teresa's beauteous soul
thy love-dart didst fire,
Deep in my heart of hearts
sweet longing love of thee inspire.
St. Teresa, pray for us.
That we may become
worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let Us Pray:
Graciously hear us, O God,
our salvation! that as we rejoice in the commemoration of the blessed virgin
Teresa (our Mother) , so we may be nourished by her heavenly doctrine, and draw
from thence the fervor of a tender devotion , through our Lord Jesus Christ,
Your Son, who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God
forever and ever. Amen. "
