JESUS CHRIST

Philip Kosloski - published on 08/09/21

Ask St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross to intercede for the world, that all may know Jesus Christ.

St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross searched for God her entire life, spending many years as an atheistic philosopher.

Yet she found Jesus Christ. and when she did, she discovered the peace her soul needed.

Here is the opening prayer for the feast of St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, asking that the whole world may be converted to Jesus Christ and find lasting peace.

God of our Fathers, who brought the Martyr Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross to know your crucified Son and to imitate him even until death,
grant, through her intercession,
that the whole human race may acknowledge Christ as its Savior
and through him come to behold you for eternity.
Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever.
