Nine Hour Novena
to
St. Teresa of Avila



Hour Four



O Most Amiable Lord Jesus Christ!


We thank Thee for the gift of great desire and resolution which Thou did grant to Thy beloved Teresa, that she might love Thee perfectly.

We pray Thee, by Thy merits, and by those of Thy most generous spouse, to give us a true desire, and a true resolution of pleasing Thee the utmost of our power.


V.  St. Teresa, pray for us:

R.  That we may become worthy
     of the promises of Jesus Christ.



Let us pray:


Graciously hear us, O God of our salvation! that as we rejoice in the commemoration of the blessed virgin Teresa, so we may be nourished by her heavenly doctrine, and draw from thence the fervour of a tender devotion; through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God for ever and ever. Amen.



Closing Prayers



Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy Name, Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.



Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with Thee. Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.



Glory be to the Father, to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and shall be forever. Amen.
