Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta was beatified on 19th October, 2003 by Pope John Paul II. Her Feast day is celebrated on 5th September. In preparation for her feast day, here is a prayer for growing in charity, service and love.
Gracious God, You offered the world a powerful example of Christian love in action through the words and deeds of BLESSED MOTHER TERESA of Calcutta.
She taught us how to faithfully serve Jesus by loving and caring for the least of our brothers and sisters. She devotedly fed the hungry, gently cared for those who were sick and dying, provided shelter for the homeless, and embraced needy children who were unwanted and forgotten.
Help me, O GOD, to imitate her love and compassion for others. Give me a charitable heart, that I may generously share your blessings, and care for Jesus today in the poor and less fortunate as MOTHER TERESA did. Amen
