St Teresa of Avila

"Let nothing disturb you. Let nothing astonish you. Everything passes. God does not go away. Patience can attain anything. He who has God within, does not lack anything. God is enough!" Today, 15 October, is the feast of St Teresa of Ávila, Doctor of the Church who reformed the Carmelite Order, and wrote treatises of mystical theology. But the words above, her most famous, were written into her own breviary - a personal prayer for someone who faced great challenges and oppositions to her desires to reform her Order. This statue of the saint is in St Catherine of Siena's church in New York.
