Quote of the day, 23 January: St. Teresa of Avila

I haven’t heard anything from Malagón for days. I’m worried, and the doctors don’t give me any hope for the prioress’s return to health. All the signs and symptoms point to tuberculosis.

God is life, and he can give it.

Saint Teresa of Avila
Letter 148 to Madre María de San José, Seville
Toledo, 11 November 1576

Teresa of Avila, St. 1985, The Collected Works of St. Teresa of Avila, translated from the Spanish by Kavanaugh, K; Rodriguez, O, ICS Publications, Washington DC.
