FEAST OF ST. TERESA OF THE CHILD JESUS, VIRGIN & DOCTOR OF THE CHURCH – 1 OCTOBER

01 Oct

st-th-q-3

Saint Teresa was born at Alencon in France in the year 1873. While still young she entered the Carmelite monastery at Lisieux and practised the virtues of humility, evangelical simplicity and a firm confidence in God. By her words and example she taught the novices. Offering her life for the salvation of souls and for the spreading of the faith in the missions, she died on 30 September in the year 1897.

Let’s pray:

God our Father, You promised Your Kingdom to the little ones and the humble of heart. Give us grace to walk confidently in the way of Saint Teresa of the Child Jesus, so that, helped by her prayers, we may see Your eternal glory. We make our prayer in the name of Jesus, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever. Amen.
