Regarding alleged chain novena begun by Mother Teresa in 1952
Please be advised that the following “chain novena” or “Luck chain letter novena”, allegedly begun by Mother Teresa in 1952 and never broken since that time, is an absolutely false claim.
You were chosen to receive this novena. The moment you receive it, say one(1) Hail Mary and one (1) Our Father.
The Hail Mary and Our Father is the Novena. This is a Novena from Mother Theresa that she started in 1952. It has never been broken.
Within 48 hours send at least 12 copies to family and friends and watch what happens on the 4th day. This is a powerful novena.
Couldn't hurt. Please do not break it..
Thank you and God Bless!

Chain letters or chain prayers are superstitious practices that can create fear and lessen our faith in God who loves us and who is not controlled by the number of letters sent or prayers said. The Catholic Church teaches that “According to Scripture, it is the heart that prays. If our heart is far from God, the words of prayer are in vain.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, #2562). It also states that “In the battle of prayer we must confront erroneous conceptions of prayer, various currents of thought, and our own experience of failure. We must respond with humility, trust, and perseverance to these temptations which cast doubt on the usefulness or even the possibility of prayer” (CCC, #2753).
Therefore if you are a recipient of the above or similar chain novenas, we ask that you do not send them on to others as it will promote these untrue claims.
