Since Virginia missed commemorating Saint Teresa of Avila’s 505th birthday last week, here is a quote of hers to contemplate on this Lenten Friday.
“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 that 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 you.” Saint Teresa of Avila

p.s. Another challenge…
“Let your prayer take shape. ‘Lord, if you are willing to suffer such things for me, what am I suffering for You? Why should I complain? Let me imitate Your way.’ If you refuse to try this, it is not likely that you would have remained at the foot of the Cross either.” Saint Teresa of Avila
