Let nothing disturb thee; Let nothing dismay thee …

… Today the Church recognizes the Memorial of St. Teresa of Avila, Doctor the Church.


“Let nothing disturb thee; Let nothing dismay thee; All things pass; God never changes. Patience attains all that it strives for. He who has God finds he lacks nothing: God alone suffices.” — St. Teresa of Avila, Doctor of the Church

    That quote was one of the first things I read on a Catholic blog shortly after I discovered that there were actually lots and lots of awesome Catholics on the interwebs! It really moved me and has stayed with me, it’s my favorite. I send it to my friends when I want to say something comforting to them. If you can just hold on to those truths, especially when things really stink, everything really will be better than ok. Thanks for the shout out to St. Teresa of Avila!
