Week of St Teresa of Avila

Oh, how good a Lord and how powerful! He provides not only the counsel but also the remedy! His words are works!

Oh, God help me; and how He strengthens faith and increases love!
(Life 25:18)

O admirable kindness of God, You allow me to gaze upon You with eyes that have so badly gazed as have those of my woul. May they, Lord, become accustomed through this vision not to look at base things, so that nothing outside of You might satisfy them! O ingratitude of mortals! To what extremes will you go? For I know through experience that what I say is true and that what can be said is the least of what You do, Lord, for a soul You bring to such frontiers. (Life 27:11).
