About Elijah’s Breeze

While Elijah was on Mount Sinai, the Lord asked, “Elijah, why are you here?”

He answered, “Lord God All-Powerful, I’ve always done my best to obey you. But your people have broken their solemn promise to you. They have torn down your altars and killed all your prophets, except me. And now they are even trying to kill me!”

“Go out and stand on the mountain,” the Lord replied. “I want you to see me when I pass by.”

All at once, a strong wind shook the mountain and shattered the rocks. But the Lord was not in the wind. Next, there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. Then there was a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire.

Finally, there was a gentle breeze, and when Elijah heard it, he covered his face with his coat. He went out and stood at the entrance to the cave.

Allí, entró en la gruta y pasó la noche. Entonces le fue dirigida la palabra del Señor.

El Señor le dijo: «¿Qué haces aquí, Elías?». El respondió: «Me consumo de celo por el Señor, el Dios de los ejércitos, porque los israelitas abandonaron tu alianza, derribaron tus altares y mataron a tus profetas con la espada. He quedado yo solo y tratan de quitarme la vida».

El Señor le dijo: «Sal y quédate de pie en la montaña, delante del Señor». Y en ese momento el Señor pasaba. Sopló un viento huracanado que partía las montañas y resquebrajaba las rocas delante del Señor. Pero el Señor no estaba en el viento. Después del viento, hubo un terremoto. Pero el Señor no estaba en el terremoto.

Después del terremoto, se encendió un fuego. Pero el Señor no estaba en el fuego. Después del fuego, se oyó el rumor de una brisa suave.

Al oírla, Elías se cubrió el rostro con su manto, salió y se quedó de pie a la entrada de la gruta. Entonces le llegó una voz, que decía: «¿Qué haces aquí, Elías?».

  1. P. S. Last time I checked, many years ago, the two books on Teresa of Jesus of the Andes were out of print-that’s why I initiated my project-I could not bear to think that her work was going to be discontinued.

    1. Thanks very much for your comment, Barbara. With the inauguration of the centenary year, I trust that there is a renewed interest and commitment among the Discalced in Chile to oversee a critical edition of her writings in the same way that the French endeavored to commit to intensive work on the critical editions of Therese.

  2. Hi Debulyn, I AM SO EXCITED! It was fantastic talking to you today on the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel! I can’t believe that my book has surfaced after all these years! You can find “St. Teresa of Jesus of the Andes” on Amazon books if you just key in “St. Teresa of Jesus of the Andes.” I think that it is only on Kindle and was never in a hardback or softback edition. I combined her autobiography with her letters and came up with the abridgement. Thank you so very much for getting in touch with me! May our Holy Trinity, our Mother Mary and all the Carmelite saints send you their best blessings!

    Believe it or not, I am not on social media including Facebook, Twitter, etc.

    Congratulations on your fantastic mission! I continue praying for your health!

    Much, much love,

    Barbara
