The Life, Prayer, And Writings Of St. Teresa Of Avila – Doctor Of The Church

by Faith & Life, Holiness, Prayer, Saints

St. Teresa of Avila went through a time of conversion even after consecrating her life to God as a Carmelite sister. Like many others, she also placed her hope on temporary things, without focusing on the eternal God she followed, but one day, years after entering the convent,

Jesus touched her heart and she responded with generosity.  Her life forever changed after that encounter.

We can all allow God to encounter us and at that moment, your gaze will rest upon the things that really matter.

Prayer of St. Teresa of Avila

“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.
