Committed to Memorare: Mary’s Prayer Packs Grace-Filled Power

05-13-2018Joseph Pronechen

"The Memorare is a prayer that effectively expressed Mother Teresa's trust in the power of Mary's intercession as the mediatr ix of all graces," explained Father Brian Kolodiejchuk of the Missionaries of Charity, who was postulator for Mother Teresa's sainthood cause. "It flowed from the love and confidence she had in Mary and was a simple way to present her petitions to her."

Mother Teresa saw it as an effective prayer because of her own experiences. "On numerous occasions she prayed the Memorare for various needs," he said, "and the speedy response she received inspired her with ever greater confidence to have recourse to Mary with the words of the Memorare. "She often resorted to what's called her "Flying Novena." Father Kolodiejchuk explained, "It consisted of nine Memorares, which she would pray as the need arose or a difficulty presented itself. She definitely inspired the same devotion in her sisters, but also in others."
