Quote of the day, 15 March: St. Teresa of Avila

Within the cross is life
And consolation.
It alone is the road
Leading to heaven.

The Lord of heaven and earth
Is on the cross.
On it, too, delight in peace.
Though war may rage,
It [the cross] banishes all evil
Dwelling here on earth.
It alone is the road
Leading to heaven.

Saint Teresa of Avila

Poetry, 19 (excerpt)
