On the Feast of St. Teresa of Avila, Patron of our Institute, the Salesian Sisters around the world pray,
God our Father, in the Saints You manifest Your presence and Your countenance. Help us follow the example of prayer and tireless work of Saint Teresa, Patroness of our Institute. Make us conscious, as she was, that God alone suffices, and that nothing is lacking to one who truly possesses Him. Grant that we may allow the power of Your love to fill us, and that we may work with evangelical fearlessness for the coming of Your Kingdom, especially among the young entrusted to us. We ask you this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
