Elementary:

We bless ourselves in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.​

Today we celebrate St. Teresa of Jesus or St. Teresa of Avila.

Teresa had a will of steel even in the man's world of her time. She was beautiful, talented, outgoing, loving, courageous and enthusiastic; a great person. Teresa was a woman who prayed. Teresa was a woman who inspired and gave new life to many hearts.

In 1970, the Church gave her the title Doctor of the Church. She and St. Catherine of Siena were the first women so honored.

Let's pray:

St. Teresa pray for us that we may allow Jesus into our hearts to share his love with all.

St. Teresa, pray help us deepen our prayer time to draw us deeper in love with Jesus, the world and one another.

Jesus give us the courageous heart of St. Teresa as we try to live out our mission in the world in service to all. We ask this in your name. Amen.

October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month. In this month we pray for compassionate for those who have disabilities. May we recognize the many contributions citizens with disabilities make to our society as we strengthen our will to help them achieve full inclusion in our workforce.

Amen.

We close in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.


High School: 

We bless ourselves in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Today we celebrate St. Teresa of Jesus or St. Teresa of Avila. Teresa was three amazing things in our Church: a woman, a person of deep contemplative prayers and an active reformer.

Teresa had a will of steel even in the man's world of her time. She was beautiful, talented, outgoing, adaptable, affectionate, courageous, enthusiastic, she was totally human. She was a living mystery of paradoxes: wise, yet practical; intelligent, yet much in tune with her experience; a mystic, yet an energetic reformer; a holy woman, a womanly woman.

Teresa was a woman "for God," in prayer, discipline, and compassion. She was misunderstood, misjudged, and opposed in her efforts at reform to connect people back to Jesus.

Teresa was a woman "for others." She founded over a half-dozen new monasteries. She traveled, wrote, fought—always to seeking to bring people back to Jesus Christ. She was a a woman who inspired and gave life.

In 1970, the Church gave her the title "Doctor of the Church". She and St. Catherine of Siena were the first women so honored.

St. Teresa pray for us that we may allow Jesus into our hearts to share his love with all.

St. Teresa, pray help us deepen our prayer to draw us deeper in love with Jesus, the world and one another.

Jesus give us the courageous heart of St. Teresa as we try to live out our mission in the world in service to all. We ask this in your name. Amen.
