Quote of the day, 12 December: St. John Paul II

For [Teresa of the Andes], God is infinite joy. This is the new hymn of Christian love that rises spontaneously from the soul of this young Chilean girl, in whose glorified face we can sense the grace of her transformation in Christ. She possessed an understanding, serving, humble and patient love, a love which does not destroy human values, but rather elevates and transfigures them.
