Prayer of the week

God of our Fathers, at the hour of her martyrdom You brought St Teresa Benedicta to the fullness of the knowledge of the Cross. Fill us with that same knowledge and may we, through the intercession of St Teresa Benedicta, always seek You, the Supreme Truth, and remain faithful to the Covenant of Love ratified in the Blood of Your Son.
Amen.
