One of my favourite saints. Feast day October 15.
I have found her writing to be both helpful and practical.
Our table centrepiece today is a book of quotes from St Teresa of Avila, some rosary beads, map of Portugal (ETA – Spain!) and a pic of the Portuguese ( Spanish) flag.
We shouldn’t build build castles in the air. The Lord doesn’t look so much at the greatness of our works, but at the love with which they are done.
Not long ago a very learned man told me that souls who do not practice prayer are like people with paralyzed or crippled bodies; even though they have hands and feet, they cannot give orders to these hands and feet.
ETA ~ I had a blonde moment and confused Portugal with Spain. They’re close, right? lol! Anny has since printed out the correct map and flag….
