St. Teresa of Avila Quotes

“Dear Lord, if this is how You treat Your friends, it is no wonder You have so few!”
~ Said as she was bucked off her horse into a river on the way to visit one of her monasteries

“Within you dwells your God.  Enter within, look at Him, talk to Him, listen to Him and stay with Him in your heart.”

“Indeed, we have heaven within ourselves for the Lord of Heaven is there.”

“Mental prayer in my opinion is nothing else than an intimate sharing between friends; it means taking time frequently to be alone with Him who we know loves us.”

“Suffering is a great favor. Remember that everything soon comes to an end . . . and take courage. Think of how our gain is eternal.”

“I do not fear Satan half so much as I fear those who fear him.”

“Christ has no body now, but yours.
No hands, no feet on earth, but yours.
Yours are the eyes through which
Christ looks compassion into the world.
Yours are the feet
with which Christ walks to do good.
Yours are the hands
with which Christ blesses the world.”

“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.”
