St Teresa of Jesus

"God has been very good to me, for I never dwell upon anything wrong which a person has done, so as to remember it afterwards. If I do remember it, I always see some other virtue in that person."

                                               How I wish I could say the same of myself!


  1. It's my favorite as well. You may have read what she said about the "official" portrait that was painted of her. I cannot remember the artist's name, but St. Teresa exclaimed: "God forgive you, you made me look like a bleary-eyed hag!". She was a very holy woman, but she was also a piece of work!


Comments which reflect true Christian charity are always welcome. Comments which attack the Pope, the Church, priests or other bloggers will go in the dustbin, especially if they are anonymous. Thank you and God Bless you!
