Lord, God of our fathers, you brought St Teresa Benedicta to the fullness of the science of the Cross at the hour of her martyrdom. Fill us with the same knowledge; and, through her intercession, allow us always to seek after you, the supreme truth, to remain faithful until death to the covenant of love ratified in the blood of your Son, for the salvation of All. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
