St. Teresa of Calcutta is widely known for her care of the poor, and her legacy continues to inspire people around the world.

However, imitating her example can be difficult, as it was only by God’s grace that she was able to accomplish everything that she did.

Here is the collect prayer for her feast, asking God to help us imitate St. Teresa’s example.

God, who called the virgin Saint Teresa to respond
to the love of your Son thirsting on the Cross
with outstanding charity to the poor,
grant us, we beseech you, by her intercession,
to minister to Christ in our suffering brothers and sisters.
Who lives and reigns, forever and ever. Amen.
