Saint Teresa Of Avila, Virgin & Doctor Of the Church
Today is the feast of this great Carmelite reformer and mystic.
Prayer Of Saint Teresa of Avila To Redeem Wasted Time
O my God! Source of all mercy! I acknowledge Thy sovereign power. While recalling the wasted years that are past, I believe that Thou, Lord, can, in an instant, turn this loss to gain. Miserable as I am, yet I firmly believe that Thou canst do all things. Please restore to me the time lost, giving me Thy grace, both now and in the future, that I may appear before Thee in "wedding garments." Amen.
Saint Teresa of Avila, please pray for us!

The Motherhood Of Our Blessed Lady
This is a relatively new feast, instituted for the Universal Church only in 1931. Well, I guess less than a century IS recent, in a 2,000+ year old Church!
