On the ninth day of the Novena to Saint Teresa of Avila, we ask our Lord Jesus Christ for the grace of a good end of life and passing to eternity , that we may die burning with Love for Him, as Saint Teresa did.
Lastly, O dearest Lord Jesus Christ! we thank Thee for the gift of the precious pass to eternity which Thou didst grant to Thy beloved Teresa, making her sweetly to die of Love; we pray Thee, by Thy merits, and by those of Thy most affectionate spouse, to grant us a good end of life ; and if we do not die of love, yet, that we may at least pass to eternity burning of love for Thee, that so dying, we may be able to go and love Thee for evermore with a more perfect love in heaven.Amen
* Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be
St. Teresa, pray for us.
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, Thy Son, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God for ever and ever. Amen.
