O most loving Heavenly Father!
We thank you for the great gift You gave us
through your beloved Saint Teresa of Avila,
Virgin and Doctor of the Church.
Her life was a great example of prayer,
sacrifice, and faith in you.
We humbly pray for her most holy intercession…
(Mention your intentions)
Saint Teresa, we know that you are a powerful intercessor
because of your close relationship
to the Holy Mother and Jesus through prayer.
Open wide the doors to the interior castle of our hearts
and souls so that we may know how to pray!
Pray for us, that we may have the gift of prayer.
Saint Teresa of Avila,
you are an example of prayerful holiness
that we will try to follow.
You are in heaven praising God.
With your seat of honor,
please beg God to bring me to eternal rest with you.
Saint Teresa of Avila, pray for us!
