About Mother Teresa of Calcutta


What you should know



The following is a sample of a “prediction” for the new year associated with Mother Teresa, together with a chain novena that she allegedly began, that is circulating on the Internet. Please be advised that these are falsely attributed to Mother Teresa.


You were chosen to receive this novena. The moment you

receive it, say:


Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name, Thy

kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven,

give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our

trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us and

lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.. Amen.

"Father, please protect and bless the person

reading this message.... "


GOD WANTED ME TO TELL YOU, It shall be well with you this

coming year. No matter how much your enemies try this year,

they will not succeed.. You have been destined to make it and

you shall surely achieve all your goals this year For the

remainder of 2009 and all of 2010, all your agonies will be

diverted and victory and prosperity will be in coming in

abundance. Today God has confirmed the end of your

sufferings, sorrows and pain because HE that sits on the

throne has remembered you... He has taken away the hardships

and given you JOY. He will never let you down.


This is a Novena from Mother Theresa that started in 1952.

It has never been broken.... Within 48 hours send 20 copies (or

as many as you can - God does know if you don't have 20

people to send it to.. It's the effort and intent

that counts.) to family and friends. This is a powerful



Couldn't hurt. Can only help.. Please do not break it..




Chain letters or chain prayers are superstitious practices that can create fear and lessen our faith in God who loves us and who is not controlled by the number of letters sent or prayers said. The Catholic Church teaches that “According to Scripture, it is the heart that prays. If our heart is far from God, the words of prayer are in vain.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, #2562). It also states that “In the battle of prayer we must confront erroneous conceptions of prayer, various currents of thought, and our own experience of failure. We must respond with humility, trust, and perseverance to these temptations which cast doubt on the usefulness or even the possibility of prayer” (CCC, #2753).

Therefore if you are a recipient of the above or similar chain novenas, we ask that you do not send them on to others as it will promote these untrue claims.
