Heavenly Father, you inflamed the compassionate heart of Mother Mary Theresa with the heroic virtues of charity and mercy. If it is your will, may she be declared. Blessed for your honor and glory and may she inspire others to imitate her love for the needy, poor and suffering of our world. This we ask through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Venerable Mother Mary Theresa, during your lifetime you practiced great charity and later wrote: "I felt the misery and suffering of others and was constantly occupied with the thought of how I could be of service to the needy and the poor." I, who venerate you, come to you for help. Venerable Mother Mary Theresa, beg for me at the throne of God, for this, my special intention through Christ our Lord. Amen.
