The Fifth Centenary of her Birth.
I do not want to distract from devotion to St. Teresa on her solemnity, except to say - her teaching informs my life and her influence is very often manifested on my blog. If I lived in her time, and somehow we were acquainted, I would have been the toad the Lord sent to warn her about vain conversations and inordinate friendships. May she pray for my salvation - the forgiveness of my sins and the grace to love the truth.
St. Teresa of Jesus, pray for for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
Happy feast day to all my Carmelite friends!
