Saint Teresa of Jesus

Today was the Memorial of Saint Teresa of Jesus, virgin and doctor of the Church. If I had to make a list of my top 5 favorite saints, St. Teresa of Avila would not only make it, but possibly top it.

Timely advice:
"Our greatest gain is to lose the wealth that is of such brief duration and, by comparison with eternal things, of such little worth; yet we get upset about it and our gain turns to loss."

Advice to those seeking God in supernatural experiences:
"God walks amongst the pots and pans."

And advice for any situation:
"Let nothing trouble you,
let nothing frighten you.
All things are passing;
God never changes.
Patience obtains all things.
He who possesses God lacks nothing:
God alone suffices."

St. Teresa of Avila, pray for us.
