Blessed Mother Teresa Novena

Mother Teresa was called from this world on September 5, 1997.
As we approach the anniversary of her death, Priests for Life invites us to say this special prayer each day.

Father of Life,
You always defend the poor and oppressed.

In Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, You raised up
a voice for the voiceless
And a friend to the poorest of the poor, the unborn child.

She brought women away from the
despair of abortion clinics
To the hope of a loving community
That cared for her and her child.

She spoke the truth to men and women of power,
Asking them how we could tell people
not to kill one another
While allowing a mother to kill her own child.

Father, as we honor this humble and faithful woman,
We ask you to give us the grace To follow her example.

May we be bold in word and generous in action
To love and serve the unborn
And to awaken our world to know, as Mother Teresa said,
That the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion.

Fill us with love, bring us peace, and let
us share your life forever.
We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.
