Reflection 4.30.18

Christ has no body now, but yours. No hands, no feet on earth, but yours. Yours are the eyes through which Christ looks compassion into the world. Yours are the feet with which Christ walks to do good. Yours are the hands with which Christ blesses the world.

~Teresa of Avila

In order to make advance in prayer… we must remember that the business of prayer does not consist in thinking much but in loving much.  Do therefore whatever may excite you most to love.  Therefore, in such times of quietude, let the soul remain in its repose.  Put aside learning.  The time will come when learning is useful for the Lord.  It should be esteemed so that it is not abandoned for any treasure, but should be used only to serve his Majesty.  This alone is helpful.  Believe me, in the presence of infinite Wisdom, a little study of humility and one act of humility is worth all the knowledge in the world.  For here there is no demand for reasoning, but simply knowing what we are and that we are humbly in God’s presence.

~Teresa of Avila,  A Garden of Prayer

Prayer is an act of love; words are not needed. Even if sickness distracts from thoughts, all that is needed is the will to love.

Christ has no body now, but yours. No hands, no feet on earth, but yours. Yours are the eyes through which Christ looks compassion into the world. Yours are the feet with which Christ walks to do good. Yours are the hands with which Christ blesses the world.

Nada te turbe, nada te espante.
Quien a Dios tiene nada le falta.
Nada te turbe, nada te espante
Solo Dios basta.

Nothing can trouble, nothing can frighten.
Those who seek God shall never go wanting.
Nothing can trouble, nothing can frighten.
God alone fills us.

~Teresa of Avila
