October 3 – A prayer in gratitude for Mother Teresa Ball


Dear God, we come before you today giving thanks and glorifying your holy name.   We thank you for all that you have given us. We thank you for the 175th anniversary of Mother Teresa Ball.

We thank you for her courage and zeal that made the Loreto dream a reality in many parts of the world. Bless the work of her hands and the initiative she took to follow the Venerable Mary Ward’s vision.

Dear Lord, we thank you for using her as a vessel of your will in the setting up of girls’ schools in many parts of the world.

We are infinitely grateful to you for giving her unto us and we pray you may continue to bless her vision of being missionary to the world. Amen.
