Father, you have enriched the world with the gift of the

life of Mother Maria Teresa Spinelli, your true servant

who, inspired by Jesus and Mary and by the spirituality

of St Augustine, lived a life of divine praise and service

to those most in need and in the education of youth.

Grant me that following her example and through her

intercession, I may imitate her virtues, always abide by

Your will, live in communion with all and work solely

for the benefit of souls. Grant to the people of God, the

joy of seeing your Servant Mother Teresa Spinelli,

glorified here on earth, if this is in keeping with your

design of love for mankind.

We ask this through your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord.
