Something To Believe In
I know by frequent experience that there is nothing which puts the devils to flight like holy water.
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, The bookmark of Teresa of Alvia
If we’re always where
we are meant to be—
why does it matter
about what we do?
I love the freedom of walking away.
I love to hear good walk out tales too.
This is probably not a monastic trait—
But my art is—
Along that journey— seeking— finding
One truth— God— the God in you—
That’s THE INTERIOR CASTLE —
Theresa of Alvia wrote about in 1577
I put the link to the book THE INTERIOR CASTLE below— (text and audio version)
Possibly— when you feel the new is stale
Find the fresh in the old—
In honor of Saint Theresa of Alvia
On the Anniversary of her Canonization
April 24, 1614
Two Different Saint Theresa’s
A Good Examination of Conscience
THE INTERIOR CASTLE

LETS BRING PEACE EVERYDAY
