Mother Thecla Merlo, Co-Foundress of the Daughters of St. Paul

Sunday, February 20: Today is the anniversary of the birth of Venerable Thecla Merlo, the co-foundress of the Daughters of St. Paul. Mother Thecla's cause for beatification has been opened. She is a true mother who readily intercedes for all our needs! We invite you to join us in praying in thanksgiving and in petition through her intercession:

Most Holy Trinity, we thank you for the singular gifts of light, grace and virtue which you granted to Sister Thecla Merlo, and we thank you for having chosen and constituted her the wise mother and sure guide of the Daughters of Saint Paul.
Through her intercession, grant that we may live of her great loves: Jesus Master in the Holy Eucharist, the Church, the Gospel and souls--souls sought and served through evangelization with the instruments of social communication--to the point of total sacrifice.
O Lord, if it be in the designs of your divine wisdom, carry out even on this earth, for this very devoted Daughter of Saint Paul, your divine promise: "If anyone serves me, my Father will honor him."
Exalt this faithful Servant to the joy of the Church and the good of many souls, and grant us, through her intercession, the favor we ask of you. Amen
