Turning to Mother Thecla
Just as people came to Mother Thecla for assistance in their needs on this earth, those who have turned to her in prayer for help have not been disappointed. I invite you to join us as we pray to obtain graces through her intercession.
Most Holy Trinity, we thank you for the singular gifts of light, grace and virtue which you granted to Mother Thecla Merlo, and we thank you for having chosen and constituted her to be the wise mother and sure guide of the Daughters of St. Paul.
Through her intercession, grant that we may live of her great loves: Jesus Master in the Holy Eucharist, the Church, the Gospel and souls—souls sought and served through evangelization with the instruments of social communication to the point of total sacrifice.
O Lord, if it be in the design of your divine wisdom, carry out even on this earth, for this very devoted Daughter of St. Paul, your divine promise: “If anyone serves me, my Father will honor him.”
Exalt this faithful servant to the joy of the Church and the good of many souls and grant us, through her intercession, the favor we ask of you. Amen. Glory be to the Father…. Hail Mary….
I invite you to learn more about Mother Thecla by reading her life story, Thecla, A Prophetic Voice in Media Evangelization by Domenico Agasso.
I promise that I will pray for you every day. During this month when we remember Mother Thecla (her birthday is on February 20), I will be asking her intercession for you and your special intentions.
Prayerfully yours in Jesus, our Way, Truth and Life,
Sister Mary Peter Martin, fsp
