Patience obtains all things.....

Really my dear bff St. Teresa of Avila? Can't there be an EASIER way to get what I want from God? Specially worded prayers, sit-ups, wearing a hair shirt, praying in the middle of an icy waterfall like the Tibetan monks?

Does it really have to be "practicing patience"....

  3. Thanks for the allusion to the prayer....while practicing patience is always needful, what I really needed to hear was the last line, "God alone suffices."

    Blessings!

  4. Abigail, I love your blog and St Teresa of Avila. My 16 year old daughter recently chose Saint Teresa for her Saint when she was confirmed! I am hoping to join the Secular Carmelites when my seven children are raised! Also, just in case anyone is interested we sell some really unique St Teresa of Avila Note Cards at the Saints Market Catholic Store. Thanks for your Blog!
