Quote of the day, 18 November: St. Teresa Margaret

“My Jesus, my Love, I resolve to be Yours, regardless of the repugnance that I might have to face.”

Saint Teresa Margaret of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

This resolution was found in retreat notes that Teresa Margaret had made while preparing for her religious profession on 12 March 1766 in the Discalced Carmelite monastery of Florence, Italy. The saint wrote these words in her own blood.
