Quote of the Day (St. Teresa of Avila, on God’s Mercy)

“O my Jesus! What a sight it is when You through Your mercy return to offer Your hand and raise up a soul that has fallen in sin after having reached this stage! How such a soul knows the multitude of Your grandeurs and mercies and its own misery! In this state it is in truth consumed and knows Your splendors.”— St. Teresa of Avila (1515-1582 ), The Book of Her Life, in The Collected Works of St. Teresa of Avila, Volume One, translated by Kieran Kavanaugh and Otilio Rodriguez (1976)
