15 October: SAINT TERESA OF JESUS OUR MOTHER

Teresa was born at Avila in Spain in 1515. She entered the Carmelites and made great progress in the way of perfection and was granted mystical revelations. Wishing to share in the spiritual renewal of the Church of her time, she began to live her religious life more ardently and soon attracted many companions, to whom she was like a mother. She also helped in the reform of the friars, and in this had to endure great trials. She wrote books that are renowned for their depth of doctrine and which showed her own spiritual experiences. She died at Alba in 1582.

St. Teresa of Avila Novena 2022 — Day 8

Saint Teresa writes, “If you do not strive for the virtues and practice them, you will always be dwarfs.” Today then, let’s pray for the grace to grow in virtue, so that God’s love for us may be expressed and nurtured in our love for Him.

Let nothing disturb you, Let nothing frighten you, All things are passing away: God never changes. Patience obtains all things. Whoever has God lacks nothing; God alone suffices. ~ St. Teresa of Avila
