This is the feast day of the Lord’s true witness,
Lover of Jesus, leading others to Him,
Woman of wisdom, passionate and truthful,
Filled with God’s favor.
God gave her grace like water from the heavens.
She drank it deeply, even as she suffered;
Perfectly docile, saint and holy teacher:
Light for the ages.
Mantle around us, Mary, flow’r of Carmel,
Pray to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
That They may give us, with the great Teresa,
