  5. I want to share my experience with St. Mother Teresa- i prayed the 9 days novena and the 10 Memorary every after the daily novena was said for my daughter to pass her NCLEX which she took last jan 28, 2017. I told myself to pray the express novena until the day the result should have been released so i prayed the it morning and afternoon the next day. We were told that the result will be released immediately on the monday after the day of the exam. So before retiring for the day by 12 midnight of jan 29 i implored Mother Teresa’s help to pray for me to the Blessed Mother that she may intercede for me to Jesus just like she did at the wedding at Cana. Meanwhile, my daughter who was afraid she wont make it , registered online for another exam that same time i was praying the express novena. The system wont accept her registration so she opted to wait to do it in the morning thinking there might be something happenning with the system.
    More or less by 9am of jan 30 she received an email congratulating her and informing her she is now in the list of manitoba nurses.
    I am very happy to tell the whole world Mother Teresa’s express novena is very effective and would like tl recommend to everyone who needs her help i asking the kntercession of the Blessed Mother!

I was recently experiencing a mild quarter-life crisis, feeling dread about a job I didn’t feel passion for and that I felt I was settling for. I asked St Teresa, along with St Jude, St Therese of Liseux, St Cajetan, and our dearest Mother Mary to pray for me that I would be accepted into my dream job that I so desperately wanted, but that I was sure was impossible to obtain. After months of persevering in prayer even when my hopes were low, my prayer has finally been answered and I am so elated and thankful. Praise be to God and thank you dear St Teresa! I continue to pray for another favour, that I may be offered a chance for rotation in this new position as it would really give me so many opportunities. I am confident this time round that the saints and God will always be looking down on me from Heaven and will be showering on me the blessings I so earnestly seek. Amen!
