St Teresa of Jesus, Mother Foundress of the Discalced Carmelites
     Today is the feast of St Teresa of Jesus, Mother Foundress of the Discalced Carmelites. The quote below is taken from the Book of her Life 22, 10.
     "We are not angels; we have a body. To want to be angels while we are on this earth - and as much on the earth as I was - is ridiculous! Normally the mind needs some support. Granted that sometimes the soul may go out of herself and often be so full of God that she needs nothing to help recollect her, this is not so normally.
     "When we are busy, or being treated badly, when life is hard, or when we cannot get that much quiet, and when prayer is dry, we have a very good friend in Christ.
     "We look at him as man, we see him in weakness and difficulties and he is company for us. Once we have acquired this habit, it is very easy to find him at our side."
