Teresa of Avila and Infant Jesus Devotion


#1

My favorite saint whose name I shall be taking when I get confirmed next Easter is Saint Teresa of Avila. I know that she always carried with her a statue of the Infant Jesus when she would found new convents.

What I wanted to know is if anyone knows of any prayers, novena’s etc. to the Infant Jesus that was prayed by Saint Teresa in honor of Our Lord’s infancy? If you do can you post it please. I feel myself being brought closer to the Child Jesus and would love it if anyone can post a prayer to the Infant Jesus that was prayed by my favorite saint.

Thanks in advance and God bless. :slight_smile:
