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 was a very, very strong woman. She was beautiful, talented, outgoing, loving, courageous and enthusiastic; a truly great person.

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 for us that our prayer time will 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.

October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month. In this month, we pray that we may be more compassionate for those who have disabilities.

Our prayer today for people with disabilities is that we recognize the many great things citizens with disabilities do for our society as we strengthen our will to help them achieve full inclusion in our work force.

SCHOOL NAME______ Let us close our prayer together once again with the Hail Mary:

Hail Mary

Full of grace,

The Lord is with you.

Blessed are you among women

and Blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, mother of God,

Pray for us sinners now

and at the hour of our death.

In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen


High School:

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 was three amazing things in our Church: a woman, a person of deep contemplative prayers and an active reformer.

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.

October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month. In this month, we pray that we may be more 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 work force.
