St. Teresa of Avila represents WAY's
personal prayer:
A Way of Loving Christ

"I tried as hard as I could to keep Jesus Christ
our God and our Lord, present within me,
that was my way of prayer."
-- Teresa of Jesus

Holy Teresa,
you who so marvelously mastered
the art of that the Church now gives you a place
of highest honor among teachers of the spiritual life,
intercede for me and for my sisters
that we may each find a fruitful way to pray
and that the Lord Jesus himself
will honor us with his presence.

May we be granted all necessary graces in prayer,
especially a humble patience and perseverance.
In Christ's name we pray. Amen
