REMEMBER

Here is a wonderful quote from St. Teresa of Avila.  I ran into this many years ago when trying to discern whether to enter the Religious Life.  It is the sort of message that puts things into perspective!

“Remember that you have only one soul; that you have only one death to die; that you have only one life, which is short and has to be lived by you alone; and that there is only one glory which is eternal.  If you do this, there will be many things about which you care nothing.”         ST TERESA OF AVILA

Wisdom from a great woman of prayer!

  1. In these later years, you would think I wouldn’t need this beautiful reminder, but I do. And I do so thank you! Betty B.
