V49: Prayer to St. Teresa

O Little St. Teresa of the Child Jesus, during your short life on earth you became a mirror of angelic purity, of love strong as death and of wholehearted abandonment to God, now that you rejoice in the reward of your virtues, cast a glance of pity on me and listen to my prayer. I leave everything in your hands. Make my troubles your own. Speak a word for me to Our Lady Immaculate-to the Queen of Heaven, “who smiled on you at dawn of life.” Beg her as Queen of the Heart of Jesus, to obtain for me, by Her powerful intercession, the grace I yearn for so ardently at this moment. And beg her to join with it a blessing that may strengthen me during life, defend me at the hour of death, and lead me to a happy eternity. Amen.
