Daily Catholic Quote from St. Teresa of Avila, Doctor of the Church

St. Teresa of Avila, Doctor of the Church

“Keep in your mind that I could not exaggerate the importance of this. Fix your eyes on the Crucified and everything will become small for you. If His Majesty showed us His love by means of such works and frightful torments, how is it that you want to please Him with only words? Do you know what it means to be truly spiritual? It means becoming the slaves of God. Marked with His brand, which is that of the Cross, spiritual persons, because now they have given Him their liberty, can be sold by Him as slaves of everyone, as He was.” (St. Teresa of Avila, Doctor of the Church; Interior Castle)
