From St. Teresa of Avila

Today I received The Friars eLetter which contained such beautiful words by St. Teresa of Avila. With such turmoil taking place in our world, in our own country - the ongoing struggle to protect the dignity of the human person - St. Teresa's words are so very appropriate for us today. Sometimes we feel that we are losing the battle, losing our Christian Hope. I think St. Teresa's prayer will help us erase these feelings, give us encouragement and help to increase our strength to go on - to do God's work - knowing that we have a glorious home waiting for us all ...

Let nothing trouble you,
Let nothing frighten you,
All is passing,
God alone is unchanging.
Obtains everything.
Who possesses God
Wants for nothing.
God alone suffices.

Thanks to Fr. Luke Mary Fletcher, CFR
