On the seventh day of the Novena to Saint Teresa of Avila, we ask Christ that our heart may be wounded with Divine Love.
O most loving Lord Jesus Christ! we thank Thee for the wonderful gift of the wound of Divine Love in the heart which Thou didst grant to Thy beloved Teresa; we pray Thee, by Thy merits, and by those of Thy seraphic spouse, to grant us also a like wound of Love, that, henceforth, we may love Thee and give our mind to the love of nothing but Thee.
* 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.
