Pray especially beginning on 6 October and ending on 14 October, the eve of the Feast of St. Teresa. This Novena was written by St. Alphonsus of Liguori.


O most amiable Lord Jesus Christ! We thank You for the great gift of faith and of devotion to the Holy Sacrament, which You granted to Your beloved Teresa; we pray to You, by Your merits and by those of Your faithful spouse, to grant us the gift of a lively faith, and of a fervent devotion toward the most Holy Sacrament of the altar; where You, O infinite Majesty! You obliged Yourself to abide with us even to the end of the world, and wherein You did so lovingly give Your whole Self to us.

Say one Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory be.

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 fervor of a tender devotion; through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, Who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God for ever and ever. Amen.
