31 Days of Prayer – St. Teresa of Avila

Today  is the memorial of St. Teresa of Avila. She is a great saint and was a reformer of the Carmelite Order. She was a prolific writer and spiritual guide in her day and sometime after her canonization she was declared a “doctor of the church.”

Although not a prayer, per se, I want to share the following counsel of St. Teresa. We can make this our prayer today and remind ourselves that “God alone suffices.”

Let nothing disturb you. Let nothing make you afraid.
All things are passing. God alone never changes.
Patience gains all things. If you have God you will want for nothing.
God alone suffices.

St. Teresa

Saint Teresa is the patron saint of those who suffer from headaches and illness so let ask her intercession for our friends and loved ones who suffer from those ailments.

St Teresa, pray for us!
