Quote of the day, 4 September: St. Teresa of the Andes

Today, ever since I got up, I feel very sad. It seems that suddenly my heart is breaking.

Jesus told me that He wants me to suffer with joy. […] He told me that He joyfully ascended Calvary and laid His head on the cross for the salvation of humankind.

“Is it possible that you are the one searching for Me and that you want to be like Me? Then, come with Me and take up the cross with love and joy.”
