Teresa of Avila is one of my favorite saints. Over the years many things she said in her writings have resonated deep in my heart, this quote especially:
“Let nothing disturb you. Let nothing affright you.
All things are passing. God alone remains.”
Saint Teresa of Avila
This week I found another spiritual nugget of hers tucked away in an old journal – a meaningful prayer for this Friday, or any day of the week!
“May today there be peace within. May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith. May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content knowing you are a child of God. Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us.” Saint Teresa of Avila

I love the prayers, thanks Virginia 🙂
As Saint Teresa of Avila would say, much prayer keeps us from letting much disturb us. Blessings & hugs Arlene! 🌟💜🙏💜🌟
Blessings back to you Virginia 🙂

I have my niche in the columbarium of St Teresa of Avila booked & paid in advance. It is a glorious looking church that is undergoing restoration now. You might want to click on link or goodle St Teresa’s Church at Kampong Bahru to see it. http://www.stteresa.org.sg/~stteresa/parish-history/
