St. Therese and St. Joan of Arc

st th and st joan

“The contemplative souls should take up the flag of humility and suffer all the scams without giving any. Because your vocation is to suffer as Christ did, hold tight to the cross and let it not leave your hands for more dangers are in that.  You should not show weakness in suffering because to support it is your honorable vocation. They should watch what they do, because if they drop the flag, … Even if they do so in pieces, the Ensign (the one holding the flag) cannot drop the banner. “ – St. Teresa of Avila

(the above was a Bing translation from a quote in Spanish – not very good.  If I could find this in English, I’d post it – haven’t yet.)
