Novena to St Teresa of Calcutta


♦On how to pray this novena more fruitfully

♦How to obtain a novena book?


First Day:

Know the Living Jesus?


“Do you really know the living Jesus — not from books but from being with Him in your heart?”


“Am I convinced of Christ’s love for me and mine for Him? This conviction is the rock on which sanctity is built. What must we do to get this conviction? We must know Jesus, love Jesus, serve Jesus. Knowledge will make you strong as death. We know Jesus through faith: by meditating on His Word in the Scriptures, by listening to Him speak through His Church, and through the intimate union of prayer.”


“Seek Him in the tabernacle. Fix your eyes on Him who is the Light. Bring your hearts close to His Divine Heart and ask Him to grant you the grace of knowing Him.”


Thought for the day:

“Don’t search for Jesus in far lands; He is not there. He is close to

you; He is in you.”


Ask for the grace of an intimate knowledge of Jesus.
