Catholic Prayer: Litany of Saint Teresa of Jesus, The Glory of Spain

Description:

This inadequate litany was found, in even scantier form, in an old book of devotions; there have been a few inserted petitions but a worthy litany in honor of the St. Teresa has yet to be written.

Prayer:

Lord, have mercy on us! Christ, have mercy on us! Lord, have mercy on us! Christ, hear us. Christ, graciously hear us.

God, the Father of heaven, Have mercy on us. God the Son, Redeemer of the world, Have mercy on us. God the Holy Ghost, the Sanctifier, Have mercy on us. Holy Trinity, one God, Have mercy on us.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, Pray for us. Holy Mary, Pray for us. Our Lady of Mount Carmel, Pray for us. Saint Teresa of Avila, Pray for us. St. Teresa, whose heart was transverberated by the love of God, Pray for us. St. Teresa, most humble servant of God, Pray for us. St. Teresa, most zealous for the glory of God, Pray for us. St. Teresa, woman truly strong in mind, Pray for us. St. Teresa, truly detached from all created objects, Pray for us. St. Teresa, great light of the Catholic Church, Pray for us. St. Teresa, reformer and glory of the Carmelite Order, Pray for us. St. Teresa, Queen of Mystical Theology, Pray for us. St. Teresa, lustrous name of Avila and Spain, Pray for us. St. Teresa, who didst forever glorify the name of Teresa, Pray for us. St. Teresa, wishing to suffer or to die, Pray for us. St. Teresa, exclaiming, O Lord, how sweet and pleasing are Thy ways, Pray for us. St. Teresa, desiring so much the salvation of souls, Pray for us. St. Teresa, tasting and seeing how sweet is the Lord, even in this vale of miseries, Pray for us. St. Teresa, exclaiming, O death, who can fear thee who art the way to true life! Pray for us. St. Teresa, true lover of the Cross of Christ, Pray for us. St. Teresa, who didst live to love, died to love, and wilt love eternally, Pray for us.

Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world: Spare us, O Lord. Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world: Hear us, O Lord. Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world: Have mercy on us.

V. Pray for us, O holy Saint Teresa: R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray. O God, Who didst replenish the heart of Thy blessed servant St. Teresa with the treasures of Thy divine love: grant that, like her, we may love Thee and suffer all things for Thee and in union with Thee; that we may gain souls to Thee, and secure our own; and this we beg through the merits of our Saviour and the intercession of Thy glorious virgin Teresa. R. Amen.
