Can you imagine the magnificent litany of prayers Saint Mother Teresa of Calcutta compiled during her decades of service to God? This Nobel Peace Prize-winning saint fed daily upon prayer to sustain her as spirited servant to her brothers in sisters in Christ. "If you’re too busy to pray. . . you’re too busy” Mother Tesera once said. If that strikes a nerve, don't worry. Pray!
Catholics young and old alike will remember to take time to pray in an unhurried way with a Mother Teresa's Prayer to Mary Prayer Pillowcase covering their cozy pillows. This lovely design features our radiant portrait of the Immaculate Heart of Mary beside Mother Teresa's own prayer, a beautiful expression of love and devotion to Jesus and His Blessed Mother. "I do not pray for success," Mother Teresa once said, "I ask for faithfulness." Like the men and women who became saints before her, this saint "walked the walk and talked the talk." We can too! Praying this tender prayer for an increase in faith as we go about our busy lives will help.
