Prayer to Blessed Mother Teresa


Prayer to Blessed Mother Teresa: our Foundress and our dearest Mother

Blessed and beloved Teresa of Kolkata, our foundress and our Mother,
bless your own Missionaries of Charity-Contemplative family.
help us to do all the good we can.
Enable us to love and adore Jesus in the Bread of Life
as you loved and adored Him; to love and serve Jesus
in the distressing disguise of the poorest of the poor
as you loved and served Him.

Mother Teresa, our dearest Mother and beloved Foundress,
filled with invincible love, profound humility, unshakeable faith and undaunted courage,
you went in haste like our Blessed Mother
to give wholehearted free service to the poorest of the poor.
Help us to go forth with greater zeal and fervour
to meet human needs, to bring help and above all
to bring Jesus to the poorest of the poor
and thus to satiate the infinite thirst of Jesus on the Cross
for love of souls.

Assist us, we pray, to proclaim the mighty works,
the Lord has accomplished in and through you,
so that the entire M.C. family may extol the greatness of the Lord
together with the poorest of the poor of the whole world.
Help us to give wholehearted free service
to the hungry, the thirsty,
those who lack the basic necessities of life,
those who live in despair and in the shadow of death,
the broken families, the little ones
and all those who seek God with a sincere heart.

Beloved Mother Teresa, you never refused
assistance to any one
who sought your help or implored your guidance.
Look upon your own children and beg of Jesus,
your beloved crucified Spouse, the pardon of all our sins,
particularly our sloth, tepidity, negligence, indifference, coldness,
pride and other sins committed against our vows
of Chastity, poverty, obedience and Charity.
Our beloved Foundress, you who ardently
desired and tirelessly worked to satiate
the infinite thirst of your Crucified Spouse,
help us to continue satiate the infinite thirst
of Jesus on the Cross for love of souls,
with even greater thirst and ardent zeal and with complete dedication.

Obtain from Jesus the grace we need
to remain faithful to our M.C. vocation;
to serve the Lord freely, joyfully and wholeheartedly through prayer,
penance and works of mercy,
desiring nothing except to love
Jesus in the poorest of the poor,
and make Him loved and served in them,
as He has never been loved and served in them before,
until we die of serving them in love as you have done.
Blessed be the holy and undivided Trinity. Amen.

Fr. Sebastian Vazhakala, M.C.
