Whispers from Carmel to encourage and inspire | Susurros del Carmelo Teresiano
Since that first embrace, Jesus did not let me go
As I began to read the Confessions, it seemed to me I saw myself in them
St Teresa felt God tearing out her insides and burning her heart with the fire of Love
A visible sensory image of the glowing love that pierced her heart
On St. Bartholomew's day the habit was received by some and the Blessed Sacrament was reserved
In seeing itself rich, while not even deserving to eat the crumbs that fall from the table...
All of us who wear this holy habit of Carmel are called to prayer and contemplation
Humility drew the King from heaven to the womb of the Virgin
I have no other remedy than to approach His mercy
I told the little girl all that Mary inspired me to say
"Sólo Dios basta." These words alone became the theme of her life
Since we have given the Lord our will, what do we fear?
She ascribed her healing to him
Rather than a pedagogy Teresa’s is a true “mystagogy” of prayer
They told me about so many people dying
How badly they pay You back who betray You!
Meditation is an admirable and a most meritorious kind of prayer
I am thine and born for Thee
In perfect conformity to God's will lies all our good
I endeavored to celebrate his feast with all the solemnity possible
