Quote of the day, 11 January: St. Teresa of Avila

The world is all in flames; they want to sentence Christ again, so to speak, since they raise a thousand false witnesses against Him; they want to ravage His Church—and are we to waste time asking for things that if God were to give them we’d have one soul less in heaven? No, my Sisters, this is not the time to be discussing with God matters that have little importance.
