Prayer for the Canonization of Mother Teresa

Mother Teresa of Calcutta,

Jesus, you made Mother Teresa an example
of humility, charity and selflessness.
She taught us that every human life
has value and dignity.
May we follow her in heeding
Your cry of thirst from the cross,
and in loving the poorest of the poor. 
Grant us, by her intercession,
and according to Your will,
the graces we implore...,
knowing that she will soon be
numbered among Your saints.

We ask this in Your name, 
through the intercession of Mary, 
Your Mother and the Mother of us all. Amen.
