Oil dedicated to St Teresa of Calcutta on prayer cloth
The Oil dedicated to St Teresa of Calcutta on prayer cloth is one of our most popular healing oils. If you check out our testimonies page you will find accounts of many people who have been helped through these oils. Mother Teresa worked tirelessly for the poorest of the poor in Calcutta, India. She is a most powerful mediator for our modern times.
Mother Teresa suffered terribly with doubts for many years which only came out after her death. At her canonization Pope John Paul 11 declared that she would make a perfect patron for the doubters. Also, despite her fame during her life serving the poor she spent many hours a day before the Blessed Sacrament.
Tradition of oils
The tradition of anointing with sacred oil is very old indeed. It is used in sacraments and also as a devotional practice. The sick person is invited to apply oil on the part of their body they want healed. As they do so, they are asked to pray to whomever the oil is dedicated to. The Irish blessings oils do not have miraculous power. It is God who has the power to heal. Applying the oil while praying are important ways for us to express our faith in God’s power. Moreover, by doing so we place our trust in God.
