Default The Mother Teresa Emergency Novena does it again!

The wonderful testimony which is below was sent to my blog to the section entitled:

Have you ever prayed the Mother Teresa Emergency Novena? (It is also known as the Mother Teresa Express Novena.)

Employment obtained
I just wanted to tell everyone that I said the Mother Teresa Emergency Novena today, asking for a job, which I desperately need. While I was praying the eighth recitation, my phone rang. After I was finished, I checked my messages and I have a job! I applied yesterday, and even without an interview, they want me to start tomorrow!

Another Matter
If you pray for the Holy Souls in Purgatory, and have received a favour through their intercession, please share it with me at: [email protected]
I might be able to use it on the Holy Souls in Purgatory webpage on my website so that others may benefit from it.

Thank you.

Fr. Andrew Apostoli, CFR, Yonkers, NY re-counted his first meeting with Mother Teresa in New York. Fr. Andrew has given retreats for the Missionaries of Charity contemplative sisters in the South Bronx on several occasions.

"On our first meeting, Mother Teresa gave me a rosary and commented that 'the Blessed Mother is all over the world bringing people to Her Son.' She told me a story stating, 'whenever I need a special favor, I do an Express Novena. An Express Novena is 9 Memorares in a row.'

In 1983, one of our Superior sisters had gotten sick in Eastern Berlin, and Mother Teresa had to appoint a replacement that could handle the Communist government. The sister that they appointed as the successor for Eastern Berlin needed a Visa. Mother Teresa gathered her nuns and started praying the Express Novena (9 Memorare’s). On the 8th Memorare, the phone rang, it was a Communist official stating that it would be 6 months until they would receive the Visa. After the 9th prayer, Mother Teresa started the novena again. On the 8th Memorare the second time, the telephone rang this time, it was a Communist official who stated "you will have your Visa immediately!" Mother Teresa had a tremendous love for Our Lady. She had great courage and once stated to me that 'I never refused God anything'."

The Memorare
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.

Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen. - St. Bernard of Clairvaux

It was not me that found work, but a lady who came to my blog. I don't need a job, I am a stay at home mother of adult children on the autism spectrum. That enough work for anyone!

I will pray for you to find work.

Mother Teresa did us all a big favour by teaching us the Emergency Novena.
